I’ve mentioned a few of these on the ‘Published’ section but it’s worth mentioning them again. The Claiming of Shamasai is an episodic novelette (ie a short novella) that’s been published by Warlord over the last six months. It’s now at an end but it has been great fun to write. It tells the tale of two individuals, both of whom are outsiders to their own kind, and shows how both are forced to react to the discovery of a a new – and dangerous – planet.
All the episodes as published are displayed below. Sometimes some of the uploaded formatting is a bit distorted as italics (internalised thought) and other emphases have been dropped in translation. The episodes, in order, are as follows:
- Refurbished – Part I and Part II
- Shaltok’s Sheep
- Pyrrhic Success
- Abominable Tech
- Aftermath – Part I and Part II
- Field Promotion
- Underground, Overground
- Staking Claims
- Epilogue – New Legs
That’s all 13 episodes for a novelette (about 15K words). Hope you have had as much fun reading it as I.
