A Dragon’s Guide Newsletter

This newsletter is for lovers of fantasy, science fiction, and dystopian fiction. It will have articles about classics such as Frankenstein and Dracula, highlight authors who deserve to be better known, both historical and contemporary, include interviews with current writers, and cover all things sff/dystopian.

To see published newsletter articles, please go to the Articles and Stories Header in the menu at the top of each page.

I understand about overfilled email boxes. On special occasions, the dragon may fly to your mailbox more than once a month. If he abuses the privilege, he knows he will be grounded.

When a foreign nation conquers her land, Zena, an apprentice snake charmer and mind master, becomes a slave in the Emperor’s harem. A sadist runs the harem and the Emperor is a temperamental drug addict.

Determined to escape, she resists those who urge her to start a slave revolt. Heroes have short lives and violent deaths. Soon, though, she learns the power of friendship and love and can no longer turn her back on the suffering of others. As life in the harem becomes increasingly perilous, Zena begins to wonder if her only hope of survival is to lead a rebellion.
