My first book on Smashwords is "Sword Tales - Dark Tales From The Pillared Worlds".


The Pillared Worlds is a baroque universe of high fantasy and dark passions. Few of its heroes are without flaw, few of its villains are totally devoid of admirable qualities. In the Pillared Worlds, as in our own, the true story is rarely as simple or as uninteresting as black and white.


Included in "Sword Tales - Dark Tales From The Pillared Worlds" is the novella "The Graf's Homecoming", which was a semi-finalist in the 2008 Writers Of The Future 2nd Quarter competition.

Great collection of stories by a new voice in the fantasy realm of fiction. Ferguson creates a multi-faceted world of adventure that goes beyond sword & sorcery to develop deep characters inhabiting richly painted worlds.

I did not get past the first story. The writer write in the first person present tense. It is one of the worst ways to write.

Do NOT pass this by. The stories reminded me of my introduction to fantasy; Robert E. Howard, Poul Andersen, Michael Moorcock and a little bit of Zelazny. I'd say that's a pretty awesome group to be included in so, damn fine job Charles, I'd like to see more from you. This book's awesomeness is not for the likes of those who think vampire love stories are the be all and end all of fantasy. In fact go away, you paranormal romance 'tards, you've spoiled my genre. To those who have some knowledge of the aforementioned authors, while Sword Nights is not quite Conan, Elric, Corwin or Skafloc, the third story, 'The Fourth Child' will be sticking in my mind for a long while. What a surprising tale of salvation, especially after 'The Night Gaunt'. Seriously awesome stuff.
