I’m happy to announce that Fortinbras, my dystopian novella, has been published on Amazon, and is available now. Click here to buy.
This novella and a short story, Justice: A Fortinbras Short Story, are both available on Amazon. Other stories about Fortinbras and his colleagues are in the works and will be published soon.
The differences between the short story and the novella is time. Justice (the short story) takes place nine years earlier than Fortinbras (The Fortinbras Files). Future stories will follow this pattern. Short stories will be about the younger Fortinbras and his friends. In the short stories, he’s not just younger, but he’s also finding his way in a difficult world. The Fortinbras Files are about the man Fortinbras has grown into. He’s tougher, harder, and more seasoned. In many ways, he’s more pragmatic.

What’s it about?
If you’re like most people, you want to know what the story is about. Here’s the Amazon description of the novella:
Fortinbras has one aim in life, revenge. When he was ten years old, he swore an oath to kill the man who murdered his family. He’s given up everything, including love, to pursue his goal. The only thing he has left is Orange Hope, the town he protects.
In this dystopian, action novella, 22nd century earth isn’t advanced or civilized. The ravages of natural and human disasters have destroyed governments and societies. There is little left for the few people who struggle to stay alive. When an invasion threatens to destroy Orange Hope, Fortinbras moves to protect his town. He’s committed to the fight, but can he save the town? He’s willing to give his life, but the cost might be higher than he realizes . . .
