“Thief” – New Release

Thief is Steve’s latest short story ebook, released 8th February, 2013.

Thief is a fantasy centred around the young thief, Tirnam.  It takes place in a city that is under the heel of an evil conqueror, its people all enslaved by the occupiers.  Tirnam lives with the old thief who saved his life, who dreams of escaping the city.  But the old man is crippled and there’s no realistic way out.  So Tirnam must face the dilemma of allowing his adoptive father to sudden terribly in a dreadful gamble at escape or to live on in perpetual danger from the conquerors.  But there’s another course, and it’s the old man who points the way:  Tirnam can try to raise the people in rebellion.  In the end, he will discover that there are many forms of theft, and some are just indescribably evil.

The ebook can be downloaded in various formats, from Smashwords, or as an ePub from Goodreads,

Reader review:

Review by: David H. Keith on Feb. 07, 2013 :
Now, this is what a story should be: intelligent, well-written and formatted, compelling, and with an ending that left me nodding in agreement. Well done, Mr. Smy. Well done.

The story line itself has been used for millennia, I’m sure, but it never grows old when told right. Mr. Smy told it just spot on. I highly recommend this.

About Steve

An author since the age of 13 years, writing again dominates my activities. My "Imagineer-ing" blog is my primary site. Also: Beginner knitter since November 2010. Favourite knitting techniques: cable and lace. Beginner cross stitcher. Beginner jewellery maker. With the promotion of self publication and all the other work that has been going on here, Dad decided around 2am this morning (22/11/2013) that it was time to begin his next adventure. He was seen off earlier the previous evening by myself, my brother, my sister in law, and my sister, as well as his wife (our mum), and an enigmatic being known only as A Lorraine. After this time of story telling, laughing, crying, joking and mickey taking, we saw how tired both mum and dad were, and we decided to leave them under the (sometimes) gentle care of The Lorraine. When Dad found the timetable for his travels, he let Mum know gently, which woke her from her drowsing, then, with the same gentleness he showed in this universe, he boarded his favourite mode of transport, the Interdimensional Steam Train, and set off with a smile and a wave. For those of us closest, that smile was a reminder that his pain has ended, and the wave, an indicator that he will pop in to all those that knew him, from time to time. Usually at the most inconvenient and in opportune moments he can. While we are sad that he is no longer here, we are happy he now has no pain, and is experiencing more extraordinary things that his writers mind will be frantically weaving into a new story.
