Rod's TalesThis page is reserved for a series of short stories--some are very short at 200 words or so--in a Urban Fantasy series.
After having some fun and practice writing very short stories I decided to place them on my blog. Titled "Rod's Tales", they are about a young Mage who has some interesting, different, some deadly, some not, some light hearted adventures. When they reach 22 or more I will do an Indie book. There are dragons here, gnomes, dark Mages, unicorns, a roc--later ones have a touch of romance. He has lessons from his Mage Mentor and on his own. He has one enemy who is a dark Mage and a dragon who keeps attacking him in a unique way. He runs into others who need help and makes friends with some different "people".
The stories didn't stay very short; a couple got as long as 3,000+ words, I wanted to put three at a time, but that will only work for some of the story sets. The longer stories will be cut up with from two to four parts, some sets will be one whole tale.
Comments are welcome: if you like them, think they need more editing--some probably do, you just hate the whole idea, want more, which ones you like, etc.
First three stories to begin with a total of 486 words.
# 7 One 794 word tale this time.
Story # 8 is 749 words long and is a single tale this time:
Two weeks after this Rod went to visit his Mentor. He thought he might need a refresher course on the things he had learned when he was an apprentice to the woman. He seemed to be taking too long to form projections. The sudden round of attacks had been too close. He had won but not by much.
A new one finally, but because the whole thing is over 1600 words I have cut it in half. The next half will be in a few days.
Story 9, Enjoy:
Sorry this is late I got busy with other writings and forgot. It's shorter than I thought it would be so I am including a second which is number ten:
Again it's been way too long since my last posting here, I got busy with writing and formatting by e-books and just plain forgot. But here are two new ones a bit over one thousand and three-fourths of (1799) a thousand words.
Story Eleven and Twelve
