William Meikle’s “The Mouth of the Ness: The Loch Ness Monster Vs. Kraken”, the first instalment of 18thWall Productions’ new novella series, Cryptid Clash!, is now available as a Kindle download.
From the blurb:
“Then come, brother,” the seer said. “Let us make such an end as the songs are made of—even if none are left to sing them.”
Called to a strange, Scottish abbey by a Wyrd vision, a band of Vikings discovers a monster which may usher in the end of the world. It emerged from the Loch Ness with its deadly long neck, and their weapons could not harm it. Were that not bad enough, soon this monster from the Loch Ness would battle a Viking legend with eight longboat-destroying arms…
“The Mouth of the Ness” is the first volume of Cryptid Clash!, a series which pits cryptozoological creatures against each other in fights to the death. And as you might be able to tell, I’m excited about it. Besides contributing a story, I’m a co-editor for the series, along with James Bojaciuk. I might’ve mentioned it once or twice or a few times over the past year and some change.
William Meikle’s “The Mouth of the Ness” kicks things off in gory style, with a tale of vikings, sorcery and sea-beasts. But there’s more to come, with stories from Gemmell Legend Award winner Gav Thorpe, Clint Werner, David Annandale and Nikki Nelson-Hicks to look forward to.
