Short stories of about 1,500 words often appear in science fiction magazines, exploring new and fascinating worlds. From that tradition comes a new story, choked with dust and fumes and the sound of gunfire. It’s one much more Arthurian than classic franchises like Mad Max. Introducing “Fire, Steel and Petroleum: A Dieselpunk Short Story”:
With innocents in danger, a Knight must stand.
Raiders have burned the village—but the civilians are on the road, fleeing to safety in a distant fortress. With the enemy in pursuit, Sir Afageon knows the people need time. With a sword, a shotgun, and a broken motorbike, he will buy them that time.
By fire, steel, and petroleum, he is a Knight of Cadrellion and that is his oath.
