Webbed novel now complete

Legacies of War is now complete. All thirty five chapters, plus newly written Epilogue, are available here...

For those who have read up to what was available yesterday, the final chapters are here... Hope you enjoy.

And now this is where I reveal that it is the middle volume of a trilogy. *g* However, it was written to stand alone. Anyway, I now have plans to drag The One About the War out of storage, dust it off and see if I can finish it, just for fun. If I do, it will be webbed too as I suspect that it will not be publishable, due to being a fantasy trope that has been done to death.

Also a trope that the reviewer of matociquala's Blood and Iron seems to hate.

But now [...] there is a recognizable subgenre of books that are every bit as derivative as any Tolkien clone.

This is a genre I happen to like. I will cut Crossover Into Fantasy World books quite a bit of slack. More so, actually, than fantasy set wholly in other worlds. But it's obviously not his thing at all.

I, on the other hand, like this particular subgenre so much that I have written (a large chunk of) two of them. And -- oooh, dear! -- the current WIP is another. So he won't like that then, just as he must obviously dislike much of Alan Garner, Diana Wynne Jones and Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. Not to mention lots of other good examples.

Oh, well...
