Sepulcher of Shadows: A Short Story following The Madness of Light

Sepulcher of Shadows: A Short Story following The Madness of Light

It has been a long, long while since I’ve done a short story. It feels good! This one is called the ‘Sepulcher of Shadows’. You can read it here on the Spine of the Empire. It is related to the events of The Madness of Light, so heavy spoilers abound. It is specifically related to Lana Zfhi’s claim that even if they tried to create another Zfhi Avatar from the genetic material of the dead, they would fail. So, in...

The Madness of Light Hardcover Copy

The Madness of Light Hardcover Copy

So...long story short: TMOL was so long that I couldn't make a normal paperback copy. So I had to make a hardcover copy. That messed things up a bit with getting the book finished as I had to figure out how to make a hardcover cover.

The Madness of Light (Book Six) Cover Art

The Madness of Light (Book Six) Cover Art

Book six. I'm really getting there. Before the first draft was even finished, I did the cover. I've been sitting on this post for a few months now because The Madness of Light is proving to be as complex and tricky as I knew it would. I also knew exactly what I wanted out of the cover for this work. Which was a far simpler task than actually writing the thing. Like Expansion Expression, the cover is concrete. What is...
