I’m working on my short story “The Chosen Pigherder” right now. I’ll be posting it as it goes, since it’s a short piece. It’s part of my “Trite Tales” short story collection. All aimed at making fun of overused fantasy tropes. This one is the most basic of all fantasy tropes, the heroes journey – if the hero were actually very, very unsuited to being a hero, not just giving a token protest out of nerves.
