Joseph Armstead, creator of vampire hunter Montgomery Quinn and the vampire families of the Moon-Chosen, has been published in several print magazines and online journals. He also chronicles the twisted tales of the demonic beings called "The Infernals". His most recent stories center are set on a distant planet, home to "The Withered Land".
At the heart of an eons-old star system, it is the Last Place in Creation. Under dual suns, one a red giant and the other a blue dwarf, it is a world of Fallen Kings, nomadic mutant tribes, alien monsters and haunted, dead cities. It is a place where Time is broken.
This is the place the Knight D'Spayr calls home and, in order, these are its stories...
1) D'Spayr, A Knight in the Withered Land
2) The Traveler in Red: Warlords of the Withered Land
3) The Withered Land, The Empire Falls: Hell's Avatar
4) The Withered Land: Dragons and Marauders
5) Mune'stahr and Pylott: Hellmarrow, a tale of The Ventriculum
And coming soon:
6) The Withered Land, The Empire Falls: Abyssium
7) Nygeia, Princess of the Withered Land: Palace of A Thousand Devils
8) D'Spayr: The Soldiers of Torment
