Walk The Fire Anthology Series


WTF2 squareA shared world anthology series spanning the distant past to the future. Created and edited by John Mierau, featuring an all-star roster of writers.

This shared world tells the story of the Ferrymen: the incredibly rare men and women who can walk through a special kind of flame and safely shepherd living beings and resources to any place another branch of that flame has been carried by hand, car, boat, plane or starship…but… to walk the fire without a Ferryman is dangerous. You could arrive somewhere unintended, be burned by the flame in the attempt…or never be seen again.

Walk The Fire on Kindle. (Volume 1).
May The Ferrymen Take You on Kindle. (Volume 2)
