The first part of my husband Donald’s short novel “A Phoenix in Darkness” is up at Black Gate now. Black Gate used to be a print magazine, but like so many others these days, it recently switched to an online format, publishing short fiction on its website. They specialize in “adventure-oriented fantasy fiction”–exactly the sort of thing that Donald and I most enjoy reading.
“A Phoenix in Darkness” has the perhaps dubious honor of being the longest piece of fiction Black Gate has ever published. Being married to the author, I’ve read the story before, but it’s been a pleasure re-reading it.
Since it’s so long, Black Gate is releasing it in three parts. Part two will appear next Sunday, part three a week after that. If you enjoy epic fantasy with swords and magic (and zombies!), check it out!
