The Forge: Fire and Ice

The Forge: Fire and Ice is a SciFan anthology that delves into the dark side.From people on alien worlds to aliens in our world, the stories explore a multiplicity of backdrops in realms of adventure, drama, success and failure. The perils of deep space mining; a portal within a yellow bus; a mild-mannered figure bent on terrible revenge; a worm in a toffee apple; a desperate chase to find air – dystopia meets utopia, blemish meets perfection.With a Foreword by Dr Who actor, Simon Fisher-Becker.

The anthology includes the short story ‘Elemental Sacrifice’ from WordWatchers member John Hoggard (aka ‘DaddyHoggy’), written during the group’s 2018 Writer’s Retreat.

The anthology was released in July 2019 and is available from Amazon and directly from the publisher, Fantastic Books Publishing.
