The Deer King

By Ben Spencer

Fantasy, Historical fiction, Short stories | Paperback, eBook

One girl. A reincarnated war god. The chance to stop the carnage before it begins. Emmaline Rain’s father is the Stoneman. His responsibility: travel into Massaporan lands and end the life of the reincarnated Massaporan deity—the Deer King—the instant he is born. But when he fails in this task, the delicate equilibrium between Emmaline’s people and the Massaporans is disturbed. It seems likely that the violence of the past will be renewed. Emmaline’s father is soon murdered by a priest of the Bronze Titan for his shortcomings. Newly orphaned, Emmaline absconds with the Saving Stone in the hopes of finding the Deer King and completing her father’s work. But when she comes face-to-face with the Deer King, she realizes that relations between her people and the Massaporans are more complicated than she has been led to believe.

His work has been published in Literary Orphans, Scholars & Rogues, and Corner Bar Magazine. He has also been nominated for the Pushcart Prize.
