I decided to check out a story, just to see in what they might be interested. The first story I came across was “the Hand of Afaz” by Euan Harvey. Rather than a quick sample, I read the whole thing at one sitting. It is one excellent yarn. It also presents a very high bar.
Remember when Swordâ€™s Edge used to have free fiction. Yeah, me too. Iâ€™m overwhelmed by nostalgia. Thing is, those days wonâ€™t be coming back. But fear not, because Heroic Fantasy Quarterly is free, and it really delivers on its name. Sweet, sweet heroic fantasy.
I honestly havenâ€™t read anything else at Heroic Fantasy Quarterly, but Iâ€™m recommending it simply based on “the Hand of Afaz.”
Go check it out. Iâ€™m pretty darn certain youâ€™ll thank me later.
