I’m very pleased to introduce another of our authors – David Thomas Moore – senior commissioning editor at Rebellion and also a very talented writer. His story, Chosen One, does something different with a very familiar trope.
David above, taking rejection a little too seriously. Don’t try this at home folks.
David Thomas Moore was born in obscurity in a far-flung corner of the world, although it has been rumoured that he is descended of kings or gods. A chance encounter with a wise, white-haired mentor propelled him on a journey to the heart of the Empire, where he received training and quested for certain items of power, journeyed for a time in the underworld, and became joined in sacred marriage. Now he does battle with a malicious giant, in the hopes of bringing enlightenment and peace to the world. (Every part of this story is – technically – true.)
