Frank Tuttle Brown River Queen Chapter One Hammers fell by the hundreds. Lumber wagons rumbled past, either filled to bursting with building materials or freshly emptied and rushing back to the sawmills and the foundries for more timbers and nails. Saws bit deep into kiln-dried pine planks, filling the air with sawdust and the steady scratch-scratch-scratch sound of honest working men earning an honest days wage. Me I sat, fundament firmly in the chair Id placed on the sidewalk. While I sat, I ...

Frank Tuttle All the Paths of Shadow Chapter One Meralda Ovis, Royal Thaumaturge to the kingdom of Tirlin, waved her carriage away at the palace gates and walked the twenty city blocks home. Ordinarily, Meralda enjoyed the walk. She loved the wide clean sidewalks and the red brick shop fronts and the rattle and clop of rubber-tired carriage traffic on the cobblestone streets. She loved to stroll down Fleethorse Street, amid the florists and herb shops and tea houses. She loved the pastry shop on ...

Frank Tuttle The Cadaver Client Chapter One Happy birthday, you mangy fleabag, you. I scratched his battle-scarred head. He rewarded me with the merest flick of his long, black tail. I sat in my chair, my shiny new boots propped on my battered old desk, and watched Three-leg Cat lick the stump of his missing paw. Thats how I celebrated the tenth birthday of my business. It had been ten years ago today that Id scraped together enough coin to pay the rent on the office on Cambrit Street and hire a ...

A frigid ice-rimed polar ocean, full of ghostly white whales and blue-veined icebergs I pulled my raincoat tight at my neck and put my chin down on my chest and offered up a pair of unkind words to the cold gushing sky. Beyond my narrow trash-strewn alley, out on Regent Street, nothing moved. Or, more precisely, if it moved I couldnt see it through the whipping sheets of rain. The lone pair of streetlamps had been extinguished ...

Sunlight mocked and set the blue jays to singing, but couldnt quite reach the Sarges casket, no matter how hard the sun shone. I crumbled a damp clod of earth, let it fall. Wed lived through the War, the Sarge and I. Lived through the three-month siege at Ghant. Lived through the fall of Little Illa. Lived through two years in the swamps. Id once seen the Sarge snatch an arrow out of the air and ...

Frank Tuttle The Mister Trophy Chapter One Eddie the barkeep stared at the Troll and then at the Dead Troll Tavern emblem carved into the bar-top and then back at the Troll. The Troll grinned. Forty-eight finger-long incisors popped out, sharper and shinier than anything Eddie might have hidden behind the bar and dripping with poisonous Troll saliva to boot. Eddie deftly dropped his drying rag on the Dead Troll carving, wiped his grubby hands on his equally grubby apron and donned a shaky ...
