Welcome to Scribal Tales, an Internet writing site featuring,
among other fictional prose, Daniel Olarnick's on-going
tale of "Odan the Scribe."
Scribal Tales is an "E-zine" for short stories
in the fantasy, science fiction, horror and hybrid genre.
This site is a stepping-stone to publication in a quarterly
magazine, and an anthology involving the "Best of Scribal
Tales." Of course, this would be dependent upon Scribal
Tales developing an audience and a following.
Here is your opportunity to submit to this site for publication
your original fictional work and be paid for it. See details
involving submission guidelines.
In addition to the publication of original fiction, there
is a shared-world writing
project where authors contribute to a common setting or
milieu, on the planet Odessa, a fantasy world, where anything
and everything can happen and usually does. It is here that
your heroes and/or villains vie for power and glory. You
will receive recognition for your participation in these
shared-world stories, and perhaps, upon publication, financial
remuneration will be forthcoming, but for now you will have
the wonderful experience of writing with others in the creation
of a legend and seeing your work published. I extend to
you an invitation to participate. Please go to the Rules
and Regulations page to discover the criteria to becoming
a member of this exciting writing project. The age of untold
adventures awaits you.
Scribal Tales has its own illustrator, Dan
Mills, (where for a fee to be negotiated between the
illustrator and author) you can bring your fictional characters
to visual life.
Scribal Tales has its own critic's column, The
Pretentious Twit, by Michael Battaglia, where your
submission will be reviewed. Michael Battaglia is the author
of Tristian a
wonderful on-going series of novels that he has created
over the past 10+ years, and will be featured monthly on
the Scribal Tales web site.
The Scribal Tales web site has been designed by Rebecca
Gallant of Gallantry
Web Design; her objectivity and expertise has made this
site what it is: Visually beautiful to behold!
