If you read fantasy short fiction, you've probably heard of Martin H. Greenburg, editor of many, many anthologies. Larry Segriff co-edited quite a few of these.
Larry's new project is StoryPortals, an online anthology focusing on three different story lines. You've got a female assassin in a fantasy world with a Arabian flavor, a thief in an Asian-inspired setting, and a modern-day hedge witch practicing in Minnesota.
Bel Thorne, the hedge witch, made her debute this week with five short stories. Authors include Eberron's Marsheila (Marcy) Rockwell and veteran shared-world writer and Forgotten Realms author Richard Lee Byers. Both stories are solid, entertaining tales.
Richard also wrote a short story about Katya, the assassin. Well worth reading--lots of action, nice twists, and a skillful use of flashbacks to tell a story within a story.
I hope you'll stop by and check out the site. You'll also find stories by several other writers who are no strangers to shared-world fiction, including Tim Waggoner, Will McDermott, and Keith R.A. DeCandido.
