The Brittle Riders - Book Two by Bill McCormick
A forgotten facility, lost in the frosts of the Pacific Northwest, holds the means to resurrect a conquered evil. To, once again, allow it to threaten the peaceful lands of Arreti. Unlike its previous iteration this time it will be surrounded by some of the finest minds on the planet.
Geldish, BraarB, R’yune, N’leah, and Sland had thought their warrior days behind them. Instead of sitting in comfortable bars, drinking good booze, and laughing at tales of heroics gone by, they find themselves mounting nyesteeds to face a legendary, and now all too real, terror. This time, however, they are joined by a new ally, Ben al-Salaam, a brand from the east who is as confused by them as they are by him.
As conflict marches ever closer they will find themselves joined by brave new allies and facing frightening new enemies. The first war may be over but a second looms darkly on the horizon and, this time, it will be fought on foreign soil. No matter the winner the result may be genocide.
Dark satire presented in a violent burlesque designed to make you think while you laugh and cringe.

Bill began writing professionally in 1986 when he worked for Chicago Rocker Magazine. He went on to write for several other magazines and later transitioned to blogs. He currently writes a sports blog at JayTheJoke.com and a twisted news blog at WorldNewsCenter.org. The latter provides source material for his weekly radio show on WBIG 1280 AM, FOX! Sports. Yes, you read that correctly, he does a show about anything other than sports on a sports radio station.
In 2011, Bill started submitting some short fiction he was writing to various publishers. Much to his surprise, and the consternation of linguists everywhere, they started publishing his efforts. Bill has expanded his repertoire to include comic books and graphic novels as well as his own stories. He has currently penned everything from dystopian nightmares to cuddly children’s stories. The Brittle Riders contain elements of both.
