The Brittle Riders - Book Three by Bill McCormick
The smell of death is all that lingers. The battle for Kalindor has come to a stuttering stop with neither side pressing further. Now that Yontar’s officially dead, and no reason for any additional action being readily available, a border is set up to maintain peace. While not a perfect solution, it’s the only way anyone can think of to avoid committing genocide.
But something still lives. Something that could render Arreti a wasteland. Geldish, BraarB, R’yune, N’leah, and Sland, basing their decision on a mix of rumors and suppositions, decide to invade Kalindor without aid to see if they can ferret out the malevolent forces festering there. This time, guided by a captain of the Ant-People, they will have no one to save them if anything goes wrong.
The final threat to the existence of the fringe dwellers and Arreti is making its push for world domination. Can a fleshless hero live up to his reputation and save them all?
Dark satire presented in a violent burlesque designed to make you think while you wonder if that’s all there is.

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.
