New Short Fiction: “The Inn of the Seven Stars” by Kevin Beckett

The Inn of the Seven Stars (front cover)

We are thrilled to announce the publication of “The Inn of the Seven Stars” by Kevin Beckett.

A tale of an inn with good music, tasty food, strong beer … and inadvertent necromancy.

Travel is hard work and, for the Fiddler named Cal, any stop at an inn is a place to perform, to share the songs and music he has loved and, perhaps more importantly, use those in exchange for a warm bed, good food, free drinks, and maybe some extra coin.

However, the roads we travel are roads that have existed long before we set foot on them and, at the crossroads where Cal finds the Inn of the Seven Stars, he encounters an demonstration of inadvertent necromancy. To put matters to rest, an immortal must be queried, an inquisition must be stopped, and an inn must be saved.

But not before he finishes his beer in front of him.

Available now in digital and paperback editions from most online booksellers, “The Inn of the Seven Stars” is the newest Special Selection release in our Dragon Gems short fiction collection.
