NOTE: This is a re-post of an old post, so I can't guarantee that the links are still valid.
This is Storyblogging Carnival LIV. Originally I did this as a series of posts, all in one day, but I've now consolidated it for convenience.
Cheese Pyrates: Curse of the Black Cheddar (part one)
by Mark Rayner of The Skwib
The first 500 words of a story in progress rated PG-13.
The opening salvo of a new chapter in the life of Jim Quinn, who's quest for revenge takes him to dark places.
[Mark always writes with humor and aplomb, and this is no exception. -DSC]
The Tortoise and the Cat
by Goemagog at this space for sublet
A 700 word brief story rated PG.
Rather short, with mild violence and chelonian magic.
[Goemagog's always ready to provide a slightly weird and very short story (although recently they've tended toward very weird and slightly short). -DSC]
A Guilding of Lillis, Scene 6 (To the beginning)
by Dave Gudeman of Doc Rampage
The next 1,975 words of a story in progress rated PG.
Zantar and Rolf find the missing children. Will they be able to rescue the darling little tykes before goblin dinner-time?
[Doc tells an exciting tale with great humor. Of course, having heroes who aren't really heroic livens things up quite a bit. -DSC]
Part III, Chapter 30 of The Child (To the beginning)
by Sheya Joie of Tales by Sheya
The latest 2,661 words of a 157,625 word novel-in-progress rated PG-13.
In which Beatriz is rescued as last, so you'd think Walker would be happy about that...
[Sheya's The Child is the longest-running continuing story in the Carnival, dating back to SBC 4. She's done a great job of keeping the story going the whole time. -DSC]
Flame of the Heavens (Part Two) (Part One)
by Stephen W of Project Paradox
The next 2,851 words of a 5,897 word story in progress rated PG.
Alderin travels onward, with a zombie's mad ramblings as his only clue: "Seek the flame of the heavens in the heart of ice."
[This well-written fantasy epic is intriguing. -DSC]
