I took some time off while the chemo drugs worked their way out of my system, but I couldn’t remain idle forever. The Priest is an idea I’ve had for almost 20 years and I’m happy to finally be able to share it in a presentable form. It’s not quite ready yet, but it soon will be. The idea for it has always been The Warriors meets Saint Seiya, or for those of you who don’t know Saint Seiya, just imagine real, physical gods occupying a city with their priesthoods serving as the gangs. Here’s the blurb:
The Last Times have come and all of civilization has been boiled down into a crucible, one last city where religions scramble to claim converts and affirm their Truth before the end arrives…This is intended to be a shorter one shot, either a long short story, or a short novelette. We shall see.
