New eShort Story: Fable: Jack of Blades by Peter David


david-fablejackPeter David is one of the most interesting and colorful writers working today.

First, he is a writing machine. Few writers can match his creative output. He must chain himself to his keyboard because he is always working on multiple projects with an alacrity of speed.

Then there is the fact that he writes in as many different genres and formats as possible. He has written novels set in the universes of Star Trek and Babylon 5, as well as movie tie-in Marvel Comics novels. The work he did on The Incredible Hulk comic book series is unparalleled and he is currently adapting the greatness that is Stephen King’s Dark Tower saga in the same comic book format. He also writes short stories and children’s books, as well as movie scripts.

Recently, he has written a series of short stories set in the Fable video game universe! The first, Fable: Reaver, is available now for $.99!

Here is a bit more about the second short story, Fable: Jack of Blades:

Fable™ Heroes, on Xbox Live Arcade, gathers a range of heroes and villains from across the epic videogame saga—and the Fable™ companion eBook series delves even deeper into their greatest triumphs, darkest secrets, and never-before-seen origins. In this second eBook short story, evil will be unmasked—but nothing is ever what it seems when Jack of Blades has the upper hand.

Finally, the people of Albion are safe. Jack of Blades, the supernatural terror, has been slayed . . . or at least, that’s what they’ve been told. But the residents of Oddwood know that Jack is alive and well. Leading a small force of mercenaries, Jack has enslaved the townsfolk and is enjoying a life of luxury—until an unassuming young man arrives on the scene, inadvertently thwarting Jack at every step. Living up to his merciless reputation, Jack of Blades decides upon a suitable punishment: throwing the newcomer into a cage with a flesh-eating Balverine. Little does Jack realize that he’s dealing with a wild card—and a shocking twist to the Fable™ saga.
