Short Story: There’s A Devil Watching Over You
I’ve just had a short story published at Tor.com. Here’s the introduction:
“With When the Heavens Fall set for release in May, author Marc Turner sets the stage for his epic fantasy debut in ‘There’s a Devil Watching Over You,’ a short story set in the turbulent world of the novel.
Safiya and her fellow bandits thought they had found an easy mark, but they quickly learned that they picked the worst possible victim. Now Luker Essendar, one of the warrior Guardians of Erin Elal, is after them, and his relentless pursuit is driving the bandits toward an abandoned fort – one that appears strewn with evidence of a terrible battle. But nothing is exactly as it seems…”
For those who don’t know already, Luker is one of the viewpoint characters in my debut, When the Heavens Fall.
You can read the story here. Or, if you prefer, you can listen to a free audio version below, narrated by Emma Newman of Tea and Jeopardy fame. I don’t mind which you do, so long as you do one (ahem).
Hope you enjoy it.
