Swordsmaster

Swordsmaster4

The sorcerer Svaerd destroyed the Aurae Council in his quest to take the power of Taernfeld for himself. He almost succeeded in his designs, but was defeated by the council’s lone survivor. Trapped within a haeld-sword, he plots his escape.
For four-hundred years, magic has been outlawed by Tor-Haval. Sandrik is the first bright-eye to be seen in Caladon in living memory, and he doesn’t want anyone to think of him as they did the ominous Aurae of legend, so he keeps his special abilities hidden. But there is more to Sandrik than even he knows. Now he is about to enter the ancient ruins of Taernfeld to be declared a man, but another fate awaits him. Will he escape it?

William Mangieri’s first novel (forty years in the making!), Swordsmaster is only available on Amazon (and free to Kindle Unlimited members):

Discover these THEMED short story collections:

Close Encounters of the Weird Kind

CloseEncountersCoverThey are not of this world, and we are not of theirs. And yet, for some reason we have chosen to meet somewhere in between. What were we both thinking?
Within these pages are twenty-one short fictions involving meetings between beings who refer to each other as alien. Whether you’ve suffered through your own invasion, or experienced a probing abduction, we trust you will find something of interest in these Close Encounters of the Weird Kind.

WEIRD, But Not TOO Scary Tales

This collection of twenty-one short, speculative fictions includes two of William’s Writers of the Future WeirdButCoverHonorable Mentions (“Breathing is Overrated” and “Date Night”) and an assortment of additional  stories to either help get in the Halloween holiday spirit. Or just because… Within these pages you will find ghosts, undead, demons, assassins, villains, aliens, and the mostly normal (by comparison) people who have to deal with them. Enjoy!

Then there are the chronological collections

Almost all the stories listed are available individually, but I’m only including links for the larger collections they’re in.

The only rhyme or reason to how stories wound up in a particular collection is that they were published close to each other chronologically (and that usually that also meant the stories were completed in close to that order.)
