Blaise Corvin — “Missing in Action”

A story about redemption, family, and loyalty. This story will directly tie into the Delvers LLC storyline, and contains a major reveal for a Delvers LLC main character.

Bastian Knight — “Friends and Enemies”

With a little bit of luck, could an ordinary guy survive on Ludus? What if he meets the wrong sort of people? Then again, what if he meets real friends?

Raymond Johnson — “A Guiding Hand”

Everything Peacehatchet ever cared about has been ripped from him. Does an ork have a soul?

Poor villagers can become adventurers too. Some people on Ludus fall into this lifestyle, but some actively search for it.

When a World War II American soldier and a German soldier are transported to Ludus at the same time, will they be able to repay a debt, or kill each other first?

Daylan Ethridge — “Just Another Life on Ludus”

During an attack on Mensk by demons and cultists, many will lose their lives, but some will step up to become heroes. Will an orphan girl defending younger children be a victim, or a shield for the helpless?

Austin Eberle — “Engineering Ludus”

A wide variety of people have been transported to Ludus over the last thousand years. Will an engineering student have any advantage? Is it possible to thrive on Ludus through using brains, not brawn?

About The Authors

After being laid off from his IT job, Blaise Corvin became a full-time science fiction and fantasy writer. He is best known for his Delvers LLC series, and his passion for the GameLit genre of fiction, in which most of his books tend to fall. Known as the Magnificent Bastard of GameLit, Blaise became a writer for the same reason that so many do: he was frustrated at not finding the types of stories he wanted to read. So, he began to write them himself, only to find that many other GameLit lovers wanted to read his stories too.
