Stargate Monuments

New Short Story

I just posted Houses of the Dead to my web site as part of the Crossed Genres Post a Story for Haiti effort.

It was first published in Black Gate #12, July 2008. It's a Giliead and Ilias story, one of the prequel stories to the Fall of Ile-Rien trilogy.
This was what the Journals didn't mention about the lives of Chosen Vessels and their companions. Ilias supposed it didn't make good poetry: And then the Vessel of Cineth Giliead and his foster brother Ilias spent the afternoon digging in the middens looking for parts of the dead girl, hoping the dogs hadn't gotten to her and that they could find enough of her to perform the rites on.

Please check out the other stories listed at Crossed Genres and consider making a donation for Haiti. There's a lot of good stories there.
