The One-stop Story Shop
A young knight heads out to have an adventure and slay a dragon. When he gets to the dragon’s lair and calls him out, he discovers the dragon has gone on vacation. Now, what is a young knight to do? A neighbor walking by suggests the knight go to a nearby story shop to get what he needs, but they are fresh out of dragons. The shopkeeper suggests a ferret will be a fantastic feisty foe for the knight. The knight isn’t so sure, but the shopkeeper suggests different scenarios — a space adventure, a western adventure, and an underwater adventure. Everything is pretty unusual for a knight, the knight and ferret become friends, and finish their adventure together.

After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
