Black Orchids from Aum -- click to visit Silver Lake Publishing's siteBLACK ORCHIDS FROM AUM

Dark fantasy stories from the Cursed City, Aum
Available from Silver Lake Publishing


Aum came to me one day while I was stuck in traffic. Staring at the car ahead of me, I noticed the letter on the licence plate spelled a word: AUM. What was Aum? A who or a where? When? Why? How?

I sent a King into Aum and found out. I wrote more stories, exploring the politics, magic, art and politics of the place, until I found a character who brought the place into focus for me: Jeloc. You'll find him in the last two stories of this collection. I have plans for him, and for Aum.
