The first release is a special “Amazon Edition” of Phoenix Tales: Stories of Death & Life, the highly acclaimed short story collection by author, and WheelMan Press founder, Gregory Bernard Banks. The collection of 21 short stories, all centered around people dealing with issues of death and life in a variety of situations, has received rave reviews from authors such as Piers Anthony (Xanth fantasy series and many other works), and Carole McDonnell (Wind Follower). The book is available from Amazon.com for $9.99, and can be found by searching for it by its ISBN, 9781440429651.
The other release, also an Amazon.com exclusive, is the 13,000-word novelette, The Summoner. The story of Davian, a member of the Sacred Order of Permeation, also known as the Summoners, is an epic fantasy tale mixed with elements of science fiction. Davian must complete a task begun by his brother three thousand years ago, but must first overcome the very same weaknesses and temptations that led to his brother’s downfall. It’s a story of love, loss, magic, and the purging of inner demons and atoning for past sins. The Summoner has topped the Amazon Shorts’ Fantasy and Science Fiction sales rankings numerous times, and is also a bestseller in the Amazon Kindle format. This is the first time the story has been in print. The Summoner is also available from Amazon.com, and can be found by searching for it by its ISBN, 9781440471285.
The Summoner marks the beginning of what is hoped to become a regular series of “Quick Reads” from WheelMan Press, short and affordable novels for the busy speculative literature enthusiast who doesn’t have the time to invest into a longer work or series.
