A month back, I conducted an informal poll on social media, looking to see what sort of short story patrons of my Patreon were interested in. Sword and sorcery won handily, so, I decided to use the opportunity to revisit one of my favourite characters – Amina Algol.
Amina is a Lovecraftian Mowgli of sorts, albeit one raised by ghouls, rather than wolves. Alongside her monstrous siblings, Arif and Bera, she wanders the strange kingdoms of Earth’s Dreamlands, upholding the laws of the charnel-god, Mordiggian. Amina and co. have appeared in several of my stories, and there’s at least one more forthcoming this year. But for the moment, patrons can enjoy their newest adventure, “The Orphan of Bones”, in which Amina and her kin pursue a cagey pair of tomb robbers across the deserts of Khem, for the low price of a dollar.
If you do enjoy it, be sure to check out the other stories on my Patreon page – including a number which are free to read – and perhaps leave a comment, hit the ‘Like’ button, or even consider becoming a patron.
