Hello all! I mentioned on my last post that I was working on a certain project this summer and I’m happy to announce that my first tie-in fiction is now up and free to read on the Magic: The Gathering website!
For those of you who may not be familiar with Magic: The Gathering, it’s a card game that’s set on various fantasy worlds. With each new deck release, there’s a story that goes along with the cards and the characters featured in the deck. The stories I’ve been working on are for the Zendikar Rising deck release. It even has a cool trailer.
I wrote a total of five stories for this project and they will be released every Wednesday in the month of September.
It’s been a fun project and a nice break from hitting my head against all the unfinished stories on my hard drive. This is my first time writing stories in a preexisting fictional universe. Like, seriously – I’ve never even written fan fiction before, though now I understand why my friends enjoy writing it so much.
Don’t worry, SFF fans and editors, my plan is to return to my own short stories in the next few weeks.
But in the meantime, I hope you are having a safe and lovely Labor Day (or just a safe and lovely Monday)!
One thought on “Magic: The Gathering Short Stories”
It’s been 1994 when I noticed that my university friends were constantly missing – I found them playing this card game. I never got into it but was always fascinated by their enthusiasm and collector’s addiction. Wizard of the Coast had me more with pen&paper Ars Magica and LARP Vampire the Masquerade than with their cards. And now, you are here and bring back fond memories of neglected friendships 🙂
