Episode 65: The Traitor

Ladies and gentlemen, next week is the very first episode of GRUBFIDDLE, my serial audio-book podcast prequel to The Bright Path. It’s available exclusively on Patreon, so please head on over there a enjoy!

Meanwhile, in Episode 65 of The Bright Path Podcast: Cyrus and Bear’s stay in Enderly is an exceedingly short one, as they find themselves caught in the middle of a dispute between two groups of men flinging giant rocks and burning pitch at one another. Cyrus receives another wound to his lower half, and then a much larger wound to his pride. We meet the Traitor of the North, and he has a surprise waiting for just about everyone.

It’s coming on toward the time when all your friends and family expect you to give them Things. What better Things than three fine comedy-romance-fantasy-adventure-political-thriller novels? Perhaps the whole proverbial enchilada in one glorious e-book?

It’s a road trip! Cyrus and Gmork unexpectedly make a new friend on the way to Roosterfoot. But Cyrus discovers that not all is as it seems, and adjusts his expectations accordingly. Gmork finds the high point of his life, and Cyrus the low.
