Coldheart, which is the first book in the League of Magi series, will feature the main novella; however, it will also include five short stories containing some of the same characters that are set in the main world. These short stories will include the following: “Dante Ascending,” where a boy discovers the dangerous secret at the top of an inner city tenement; “Wait,” the story of two soldiers on opposite sides becoming unlikely friends; “The Menagerie,” where a young couple finds an extradimensional zoo; “Dead Drop,” which chronicles the rise and fall of a spy; and, finally, “Stillwater,” where a town is accidentally sent to Hell.
Having reached its initial goal, Coldheart is guaranteed to be printed; however, its $1,500 stretch goal will allow donors (pledging $15 or more) to receive Coldheart stickers, buttons, and bookmarks. In addition, donors pledging $50 or more will receive a collection of printed postcards from the town of Stillwater, featured in one of the short stories! (Each one has a message from one of the doomed survivors of a town condemned to Hell. Be the envy of all your friends! And, you know, all the folks in Stillwater.)
