Read "The Green Wizard"
It's been a year and a month (apparently to the day), since my first piece of flash fiction placed second in its heat in the NYC Midnight Competition. It's tough writing a prompt-based story that stands on its own outside the competition for which it was written--even tougher selling a prompt-based story that no longer has its First Rights (careful where you submit your stories, folks)!
I want this story out there for people to read; so while I continue to flog my other stories to various markets, I'm pleased to give you Ladomas, incorrigible wizard's apprentice, in his debut role. Go on, see what he has under his hat!
