Joshua E. B. Smith is a fantasy horror author from Vienna, WV. A lifelong fan of fantasy, horror, and things that go bump in the dark, he's been writing for most of his adult life and started publishing stories to Amazon in 2014. With six novels, novellas, and short stories published and more than 30 five-star reviews on Amazon, he's not quitting anytime soon.
His series, the Saga of the Dead Men Walking, is set in a fantasy world not too unlike a mix of Game of Thrones, The Elder Scrolls, and Supernatural. In a world where good things happen to bad people and the good people are questionable at best, mercenaries take up arms against all manner of things living and dead, while a young priest begins his journey of self discovery... and finds broken bodies and even more broken people with every step he takes.
Fair warning: This series is not for the faint of heart. With violence against men, women, children, and a goat, even the priests swear and being damned may end up feeling like it's not that bad of an alternative. Don't let your children read this; and if you're offended easily, this series is not for you.
For more about the Saga, feel free to hop over to: Joshua E. B. Smith
