Storyblogging Carnival XXXII

Welcome to the 32nd storyblogging carnival. Storyblogging is essentially just storytelling in blog format. Quite often it is fictional, but as you can see, this edition we have two non-fiction posts too. (I’ve split the entries by fiction and non-fiction, and I posted the one audio submission at the end — for some reason, Quicktime files just don’t work on my computer.) I haven’t submitted anything to this carnival, but if readers are looking for fiction from The Skwib, the best thing to do is look under the “skwibby fiction” category, where you’ll see the latest. You might also want to check out the fiction (short story) section of my website, where you’ll find some of my published work.


Ink Magic (part II)
Dave Gudeman at Doc Rampage gives us the entertaining second part of this story.

The Spy Novel, #25
by The Colussus at The Colossus
Description: Eric Ashley (who reviewed this novel so far) had this summary: “Cold, controlled, paranoid, and searching speculation based on tiny clues, this story sucks you in, and grabs you. Who are your friends? Is the hero that, or simply a protagonist of questionable virtue, although undoubted skill? When will the betrayal come, and who will do it? Crisp writing style, and more questions than one can shoot with a full clip of ammo.” The novel begins here.
(1909, PG-13 for combat violence)

Ghosts, Chapter 11 of Fire
by Donald S. Crankshaw at Back of the Envelope . Fire is the first part of The War of the Elementals.
