So, it's a week late but here is the beginning of the last installment of the Dredmor Cycle! I have a confession to make. Writers really write stories so we can write forwards. If we could make money just by writing forwards to other people's books and nothing else, I think we'd do it. I know I would. Its fast, easy and intensely ego gratifying. So I'd like to take a moment and say thanks to everyone who reads this. I really appreciate it. So why is this the end of the Dredmor novellas? Three reasons. 1) Humans beings like things in threes. It's a psychological thing. That's why there's so many trilogies out there. Three feels more complete than four. Don't ask me why. 2) This installment of the story puts a capstone on the narrative and I couldn't go beyond it without opening a whole new can of worms, something I'm loath to do. I'll say more about this in the afterword. 3) I have other projects, projects I hope to someday soon parley into actual income, which are demanding my attention. It's my hope that, as they come closer to completion, I'll be able to share more about these projects with those of you who read my work. Hopefully you'll enjoy them just as much, if not more, than these little pieces of short fiction. So, what about Dungeon Delving? Simply put, this is a coming of age story. It follows a lich we all know and loathe as he comes into his own unholy powers, and learns to be a blight on the cosmos. And it follows a young man named David Lamplighter as he sharpens his skills to destroy that lich. Last, but not least, it focuses on the shapely young diggle that is caught between them, and really just doesn't want his home burned down in the scuffle. And it's also very silly, because the last novella didn't have enough of that in it. Here's hoping you'll enjoy.
