I just finished Stories From Arisa, a short story collection set in the same universe as A Warrior’s Path! It’s not volume two, but it is pretty awesome. I would say that wouldn’t I?
Anyway, first up is Received Wisdom, a story featuring Li-Dirge as he becomes the SarpanKum of the Eastern Plague.
Next is The Prank, a story from Rukh’s time at the House of Fire and Mirrors, one of the two Kumma martial academies in Ashoka. Keemo features prominently in this one, and I was glad to write him again. Though his screen time was short, he was always one of my favorite characters, and I’ve always felt bad about how Keemo died.
Then comes A Lesson Learned. It’s a tale about murder in Ashoka.
Finally there’s The Missing Diamond, a story about an arrogant Cherid who loses a priceless diamond. Lieutenant Rector Bryce has to catch the thief.
Oh yes. I almost forgot. I’m also including the Prologue and Chapter 1 of A Warrior’s Knowledge. For those who don’t remember every detail of Arisa, I’m also including the glossary in the back.
Right now, the stories are off to editing, and I also need some cover art. Hopefully, it’ll be ready to be published in a few weeks.
