Between the Rock and a Hard Place (Book Excerpt)

Wildspace: The Spelljammer Fanzine

Spacefarers everywhere agreed: the Rock of Bral was a wretched den of vice, thievery and betrayal; the midden-pit of the Universe.  But everyone came there eventually.  That’s what Shaundar Sunfall was relying on.  Sooner or later, if his sister yet lived, she would come to this place.

  1. I don’t mean to be one of those people… but is there a change that this series is available in mobi format somewhere? I’d love to be able to read it on my kindle.

    • The website link at the bottom takes you to places you can download pdfs of everything finished so far. They’ve been formatted for e-readers and they look all right on my Sony reader. Will those read on a Kindle? If not, let me know. So you are aware, “A Few Good Elves” is completed but the others are all still works in progress (I explain on the website.) Thanks very much for your interest!
