New Novel, “Substitute Hero”!

The first 20 chapters of my novel, Substitute Hero, has just released on Creative Novels (clink on the names for link.)

Synopsis: “He made his living managing a fried chicken franchise and filled his life by reading translated web novels. But he died while stopping Truck-san from killing a group of schoolchildren in a crosswalk.

“The thing is, even though the setting is now the summoned hero novel he had been reading, his transmigration story doesn’t seem to know what genre it wants to be! Why is he now a fairy vampire? And kicked out of the Hero’s Party?  And the daughter of a duchess? And the princess’s rescuer? and enrolled in the royal academy, and engaged to the prince, and…

“Please enjoy this story about a young knight just trying her best while life keeps throwing new changes at her, in a world where the Demon Lord threatens, the summoned hero needs help, the manager of the afterlife’s Hero Relocation Department drops in for visits, and there’s also school to worry about.”

This novel will be updating on Tuesdays and Fridays from here on out.

New Pubs

At the top of this page, I have added a menu bar with ‘short stories’ and ‘web novels’. Under those, I have parked four items.

Under “Short Stories”, I reposted three stories (a short and two novelettes) that have been on my Writing.com page for a while:

Cosmogony – Originally appeared in “Farspace”, also a short story anthology.

Orange Sky – Not in print anywhere, but a personal favorite.

Grandfather – Originally appeared in “Farspace 2”, a short story anthology.

In addition, I am now serializing the episodic web novel, “Tales of the ESDF“, on Scribblehub. A link to it appears under the menu item “Web Novels”.

Fushigi’s Web Novels

The first post is somewhat intimidating, I think. Practically nobody will read it, yet you feel like you have to say something brilliant.

[takes deep breath]

Right. Let’s do this.

I go by Fushigi in some places and Eric the Fred in others. This is my announcement page for new chapters and short stories.
