Hey there, faithful readers! I’ve been pretty busy the last few days adding a bunch of new stuff to the Tyrant King and Gondolend stores, and I’m pretty happy with how a lot of it looks. So, I thought I’d show some of it off.
Why hello readers, it’s your old pal Mister Svensen here with a couple website announcements.
Hello, and welcome to Tyrant King’s new blog feature, where the site’s contributors wax opinionated on various creative and art-related goings-on. Which technically isn’t new, since I’ve posted opinion pieces and a review here before, but look shut up, I didn’t ask for your opinion.
I’ve been reading comic books lately, so that’s what I’m going to talk about here. Or specifically, I’m going to talk about which ones I’m reading right now.

Many years ago, no one’s sure exactly how long, humanity seemed like it was finally starting to take responsibility for its transgressions. Our species carbon emissions were capped, and began to drop as the years went by. The use of fossil fuels was coming to an end as the worlds best and brightest came up with safer and cleaner alternatives. When the effects of our efforts became tangible, it helped to ignite a revival in all things scientific. Our eyes turned to the stars with renewed interest, while research into biotechnology grew exponentially down here on terra firma, to the extent that “prehistoric parks”, as they were called, started popping up all over the planet.
Here at Tyrant King Productions, one of our goals is to help aspiring indie writers improve their craft. To that end, I’ve decided to host collaborative writing threads on the forums as a way to give our members without a lot of experience writing fiction the opportunity to get some practice in.
These threads are open to everyone, not just Tyrant King contributors, so if this sounds like something you might be interested in taking part in then get on over to the forums. The second story is just getting started and new writers are always welcome.
And here I present to you the results of the first-ever Tyrant King Forums group writing thread, in all its meandering, inconsistent, rough-edged glory.
You may have read the smash hit space opera sensation Shining Armor, but have you had it read to you by a bored Australian robot? Well, now you can! With Shining Armor: the audiobook!
Not only is this timeless classic, loved by millions the world over, now presented in a hands (and eyes) free audio format, perfect for those long tedious commutes, but it also comes as an all new, never before seen revised edition, featuring new details and fixing all the typos I missed the first time around! (The original chapters on this site have also been similarly revised.)

The sun had not yet risen, but the birds were already beginning to sing in the trees when Justin Case’s SUV pulled up in front of Gina’s father’s house. The houses and trees of the neighborhood were silhouetted against the indigo sky, as it slowly faded to a lighter blue in the west. As Gina left the house and crossed the front lawn, she shivered in the pre-dawn chill.
