Author bio:

Fred Warren hails from the merry old land of Kansas, and his short stories have appeared in a variety of online and print magazines, such as A Fly in Amber, Beyond Centauri, Every Day Fiction, Mindflights, and Residential Aliens.The Muse is his first novel.

Excerpt:

They opened their eyes. Stan was resplendent in chain mail that seemed to glow from within despite the dim light, a fine silk hauberk, and a triangular shield bearing the image of a silver unicorn rampant across a black field. At his side was strapped a magnificent jeweled sword, which he drew in a smooth arc, the metal ringing like a bell as he did so.

"Illustrion," he sighed, gazing in wonder at the keen, rune-inscribed blade.

Davos looked every bit the dashing space ranger in his uniform, with an insignia-laden leather jacket, side-striped trousers, and shiny knee-high boots. He carried a lethal-looking energy rifle that hummed with power. "Yes," he said in a satisfied tone, "I think this might deal some damage."

Jilly also seemed pleased with her transformation. She wore a black leather catsuit that sported a weapons belt with a variety of sharp objects suitable for hacking, stabbing, and throwing, and she carried a sleek crossbow and a quiver filled with razorhead bolts. "Nice," she said, taking aim at an imaginary target with the crossbow, "I think I could get used to this."

"Ah...guys?" Stan said, pointing toward the other inhabitants of the clearing, their eyes wide with terror as they huddled together. "I'm thinking we may want to ask our friends over there to join our Let's Pretend Club."

"Just a second," said Jilly, twisting her body and swiveling her head around in an effort to see her back. "I need to do a little more imagineering here. I just realized this outfit doesn't have a zipper."

From the Author:

This story is about inspiration--its meaning, origins, and purpose. It also
explores the idea that there's more than one kind of inspiration, and it's
important to understand the source, nature, and ultimate effects of the
creative energy we're using.

Creation is perhaps the most human activity of all, for in the act of
creating, whether it's producing a work of art, telling a story, building a
business, or raising a family, we express in microcosm the nature of the
Creator, who gave us life and made us in His image with the intent that
we, in our small, clumsy way, attempt the sorts of things He does with
perfect excellence.

I didn't start out writing The Muse with the intent of producing a
"Christian" novel, though my own faith can't help but emerge somehow
in anything I write. References to the spiritual world unseen to human
eyes are pure speculation. I know the power of love, loyalty, truth,
courage, and self-sacrifice beyond any shadow of doubt, and I am
likewise certain that God works purposefully in our lives, for our good,
though we often don't recognize His hand except in retrospect.

I enjoyed writing The Muse, and I hope you'll find it interesting,
entertaining, and maybe even a little inspiring.
