The Hounds of Ash and other tales of Fool Wolf

An Anthology...

Thrust into periless action by his father’s spirit and his village’s shaman, Fool Wolf, perhaps the laziest of heros in his father’s eyes, must face his battles, or face the wrath of his ancestors.

In this collection of short stories by Greg Keyes, Fool Wolf is thrown into the mercy of the gods of whom he worships and loaths. He is forced to defend himself against the destiny that he is to fulfill.

The mysteries of his ancestors is brought to light as Fool Wolf traverses the vast empire of his people’s land in search of answers, both surprising and expected. He must face his gods and goddesses and they use his body as a vessel to due their biddings.

Fool Wolf’s tale is one of extraordinary feats that allows him to overcome his dark and secretive past that plays a toll on what is to come.

Stories in this collection:

  • “The Fallen God”
  • “The Hounds of Ash”
  • “The Opal of Nah”
  • “The Python King’s Treasure”
  • “The Skin Witch”
  • “The Sleeping Tide”
  • “Wakes the Narrow Forest”

Praise:

"As I've written before, Abaddon is our most overused font. Everyone seems to love it, from fantasy book publishers to heavy metal bands like Godsmack. In its latest appearance it's coupled with the work of one of the best young writers of fantastic fiction in The Hounds of Ash a forthcoming collection of related short stories from Greg Keyes. Keyes' background is as an anthropologist and he builds extraordinarily interesting and detailed fantasy worlds full of rich and original mythology which draws on real-world archtypes but is often startlingly different. Every Keyes book is a must-read for me and you won't go wrong starting to discover his work with this collection." - Dave Nalle, Fontcraft's Scriptorium

"Not only is Greg experienced with all his other series etc, but what really intrigues me is that Greg Keyes has a background in anthropology, and a lot of knowledge of shamanism etc, which he really weaves into this book. The cover is absolutely stunning — but what is inside is even better!" — Janessa, Reader

"As much as I love Greg Keyes’ The Kingdoms of Thorn & Bone, I have to say that I loved “The Hounds of Ash and Other Tales of Fool Wolf” even more and fervently hope that the adventures of Fool Wolf will continue…" — Robert, Fantasy Book Critic

"This collection of stories is a fun read, and should be forced into the hands of anyone who pines for the good old days of pulp fiction. The Fool Wolf stories were originally published in Dragon magazine and this marks their first collection in a book format. That said, even those who've already read these stories will be glad they picked up the book, as Keyes has written a new, three-part story which brings back all of the series' best characters and wraps up all the various plot lines surrounding Fool Wolf's life. As such, this collection of stories reads in many ways like a novel and will be enjoyed by anyone who loves classic swords and sorcery style fantasies. I also hope Keyes will consider bringing back Fool Wolf in some new stories, or perhaps even in his own novel." — Jason Sanford, Monsters and Critics

"Reminiscent of the heroic swords'n'sorcery tales of yesteryear — Fafhrd & the Grey Mouser or the Thieves' World stories come to mind — The Hounds of Ash and Other Tales of Fool Wolf introduces a welcome new scoundrel to the ranks of fantasy." — Dru Pagliassotti, The Harrow

"The Hounds of Ash and Other Tales of Fool Wolf will appeal to lovers of this fantasy sub-genre and readers who enjoy such tales straight up or with tongues firmly planted in their cheeks. At times, the stories have the feel of folklore or the trickster-type character. Points given for some originality." — Ronald Hore, CM Magazine
