The Perfumed Air at Kwaanantag Bay

cover art for In this literary fantasy novelette, three exiled travelers, Kug, Agane, and Dennick, have traveled across the continent of Kaebrith, far from the home from which they’ve been exiled, searching for the healer who can cure Agane of a devastating illness.

But an unexpected development forces difficult choices. Can they face the consequences of the past in order to have any kind of future?

The Perfumed Air at Kwaanantag Bay is a character-driven, literary, romantic low fantasy set in The Shaper’s World, the original storyworld introduced in the novel Light of the Outsider. The Perfumed Air at Kwaanantag Bay includes characters featured in Light of the Outsider, but you don’t have to have read that novel to enjoy this novelette… although your experience may be enhanced if you have.

The Shaper’s World:
A New, Original, Realistic Fantasy Setting!

The Perfumed Air at Kwaanantag Bay is the second work in the Shaper’s World Cycle and a companion to The Outsider Trilogy:

The Outsider Trilogy introduces us to the Shaper’s World, and sets the stage for a second trilogy, The Dominion Stone:

  • Thraal
  • Invasion
  • The Shaper of the World

Additionally, I have plans for serial fiction, short stories, novellas, and even role-playing-game materials.

It all starts with Light of the Outsider

What Is The Shaper’s World?

The Shaper’s World is a fully-realized original fantasy setting in which three sentient hominid species struggle to peacefully co-exist… while encroaching forces from beyond reality threaten existence itself. You won’t find elves and orcs in the Shaper’s World, and it’s not your typical “Medieval Europe with funny names and some magic” setting, either. I built the Shaper’s World from the ground up. I think you’ll enjoy hanging out there.
