About David Shadoin
David has spent his whole life reading great books, and consuming arts/entertainment in as many ways as possible. Now he's trying to live up to the content he consumes by being a writer. He lives by two Mantras: 1. If Burd is Heppy, Leave It. 2. Rather be lucky than good any day. The second primarily applies to his golf game. He likes short walks from the bar to his house, and enjoys dimly lit rooms with plenty of scotch.

It’s the Twenty-Second Century. The galaxy has opened up to humanity as a hyperactive beehive of stargates and new technologies, and we suddenly find ourselves in a vast playground of different races, environments, and cultures. There’s just one catch: we are pretty much at the bottom of the food chain.
Enter the Four Horsemen universe, where only a willingness to fight and die for money separates Humans from the majority of the other races. Enter a galaxy not only of mercenaries, but also of aliens, hired assassins, and accountants. Accountants?

Changelings, Ogres, Medusae, and other fantastic creatures all have tales to tell, tales that show they’re more than simply horrors in the night or foes worthy of heroes to defeat.
Fifteen of these tales are here in Talons & Talismans I.
A necromancer tries to save a zombie from a broken heart. A medusa searches for someone who sees her and doesn’t have a heart of stone. Werewolves mourn lost families while seeking new ones. And, of course, there are Dragons, including one who must choose between his hoard and a new friend.
Will these monsters remain monstrous, or will they become something more than simply a beast? Come and find out.
