With only a week to go until the May 6th release of Voyagers: The Third Ghost, our IWSG Anthology of 10 diverse historical fantasy short stories just received its first 5-star review. My tale gets an honourable mention, but I’m champing at my bit to read all the other awesome stories.
On Wednesday, I’ll be re-blogging another IWSG Anthology blog post with my fellow writers’ thoughts on their experiences with language. Be enthralled at all the past revelations at:

W for Witcher (2018)
Even now when I’ve played some other excellent games, Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt remains my favourite and the benchmark as I game on. I still have more of the enjoyable books that inspired the games. Plus, the Netflix adaptation lived up to expectations with my wife and I watching Series One religiously.
I’ve also started playing Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, which satisfies my unsated fascination with the Witcher-world and addiction to Gwent, the card-game in Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt. Recommended for those of a like disposition.
On the other hand, exploring the literature and folklore behind this game was one of the reasons I began my investigation into the creative Origins of various On-line Games. Unlike other games, the roots are Slavic so took me down some new rabbit holes – ones I’ve used elsewhere. Skadi meets Baba Yaga?
I will post about other games that were relevant in 2018 and still are meaningful.
