"The Giants of Galtares," published in Beneath Ceaseless Skies

Fan fiction is as old as literature. Throughout the centuries, the Spanish medieval masterpiece, Amadis of Gaul has inspired hundreds of sequels and spinoff works — and the novel itself was a spinoff from tales about King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.

I have continued that tradition and written “The Giants of Galtares.”

In Chapters 11 and 12 of the novel, Amadis’s brother Galaor travels to Galtares to do battle with the giant who has taken those lands from Galaor’s step-father. He is accompanied by two damsels he meets along the way.

This is the story of one of the damsels who witnesses Galaor’s combat — and who faces her own life-changing test of courage. You can read “The Giants of Galtares” in issue #111 of Beneath Ceaseless Skies, an online magazine of literary adventure fantasy:
