It took longer than I wanted, but the free Wolf Dasher short story is available. (I’ll be blogging next week about the foolishness of trying to get anything else done when trying to move during the holidays.)
“The Darkline Protocol” is set a couple years before the events of State of Grace. Wolf is sent to Mensch, East Bretelstein, to determine who is leaking top secret information to the Phrygians from the Urlish consulate. The answer is surprising and forces Wolf to attempt a daring rescue.
“Darkline” clocks in at just under 4000 words and is a quick read. It serves as a nice introduction to the world in which Wolf works and to his basic personality. You can download the whole story for free by clicking on the cover image below.
