Excitement in Amalcross and Beyond…
Plus, a limited time discount that gets you a FREE print issue!
It’s a pretty dramatic time in Amalcross and throughout the Distant Reaches, what with train-heists-gone-wrong, failing banks, and arcane mages upending their own war-crime trials.
Isn’t it exciting?
The thrilling adventures won’t let up anytime soon. In addition to the weekly dispatches and fiction from Ballads of the Distant Reaches, in the coming months we’re also launching:
Character-driven fiction in a new, serialized format;
A new website;
And our new print magazine featuring some of our most popular stories, in addition to new art, reviews, and interviews.
There will be more soon on all of these ventures, and we’re only able to do all this with the support of our constant and earnest readers like you.
Ballads of the Distant Reaches is a labor of love — love for socially minded fantasy, expansive world-building, wonderful storytelling, and gorgeous art.
We only need 37 additional paying subscribers to become self-sustaining. This is totally attainable with your help! All of our writers and artists are paid for their work. Please consider becoming one of our core subscribers so the adventures can continue.
Through April 17th, we’re running a special 20% AMAL discount on both our annual and monthly subscription plans. Paid subscribers gain access to our full-length fiction, our complete story archives, and all the additional art therein.
Plus, annual and Founding subscribers will receive a FREE copy of our first print issue (projected cover price: $24.99) — what a deal!
But hurry — this offer expires April 17, 2023.
In the meantime, catch-up on all the latest exploits throughout the Distant Reaches:
A train heist goes awry when a decades-long rivalry explodes in our latest story, the neo-Western “Bad Day on the Speeding Sinner.”
Silicon Valley Bank ain’t got nothing on Greedson & Sons in's vicious satire, "News Break: Bank Run in Troll Valley."
- commits to paper the epic oral tradition of "The Veins of Stromgyre," a popular — albeit heterodox — creation myth from the Reaches.
And a Binder reveals his own brand of justice while on trial for treason in's truly incredible "Craftsman of Strife."
As always, thank you to all of our current and new paid subscribers: You’re helping us keep the enchanted candles alight.
