Tales of Fortannis: A Bard’s Eye View

The anthology Tales of Fortannis: A Bard’s Eye View, in which you’ll find my fantasy short story “A Rock Is a Rock Is a Rock … Or Is It,” is now available from Amazon in print and Kindle and from the publisher, Double Dragon Publishing, as an e-book.

The anthology has a wide variety of tales featuring humans and other species. The characters in my story are goblins. The goblins of Fortannis are not big, menacing creatures but are short, green-skinned, and red-headed. Humans tend to regard them as lesser creatures, but they have their own special brand of wiliness. My story is a tale of adventurous goblin children whose curiosity drives them to follow a human road. What they find is not at all what they expect.

A Bard’s Eye View is a wild and weird collection of fantasy stories that present some of the freshest writing around. Derring-do with a great sense of fun. Highly recommended.” – New York Times bestseller Jonathan Mayberry, author of The King of Plagues and Dust & Decay

“Rollicking good fun perfect for a beach read, subway read, airplane read – heck, just buy it and read it! Mirth, mayhem and magic in an intriguing world.” – Gail Z. Martin, author of the Chronicles of the Necromancer series

A Bard’s Eye View is a varied collection of adventures, whimsies, variously grim, grand and comedic; this book will appeal to fans of gaming and fantasy alike.” – Jay Lake, Campbell Award-winning author of Green and Mainspring

“You don’t need to know the background material to enjoy the range of stories from the talespinners assembled here. It has plenty of adventures that end with a twist that leave you shaking your head in pleased surprise. I’ll be happy to look for many of these writers in days to come.” – Jody Lynn Nye, author of View from the Imperium and Dragon’s Deal

About J. Thomas Ross

Since retiring from a career as a high school English and history teacher, I've been pursuing a career as a writer. My main interest is in writing novels, but I've also written short stories and poetry and done a little editing on the side. I am currently working on a Young Adult novel. One of my poems - "Winter" - won an award at the 2010 Philadelphia Writers Conference, and you can find my fantasy short story "A Rock Is a Rock Is a Rock ... Or Is It?" in the anthology Tales of Fortannis: A Bard's Eye View, which is available in print and Kindle format from Amazon and as an e-book from Double Dragon Press.
