Short stories that I've written over time. Most of them fall within my greater universe and are canonical to it or once was. You can use this website (that I built) to search some of my short stories by tags and other criteria.
These short stories, except for ‘Sepulcher of Shadows’ (which is set after the sixth book and contains spoilers for it), are not tied to the series in any direct way, but they color the world. For an understanding of chronology, please checkout this guide.
