Wrought Gothic is a collection of mood pieces and background writings which illuminate some less familiar corners of the Fourlands. These are not short stories but rather literary vignettes from the Castle mythos which did not make it into the novels.

Wrought Gothic is a sumptuously presented booklet, available directly from Air and Nothingness Press.
In the year 625, five years after Saker took his place in the Circle as Lightning, he returns home on leave from the war. Instead of rest, he finds renewed rivalry with his brother Gyr; a rivalry which will be played out in a deadly chariot race which can only have one victor. But Saker has another reason to return to Micawater: his lover, Martyn. If she marries him, she will also be made immortal. Can their scandalous love prove stronger than the taboos which hold them apart?
Het Rad von Fortuin (The Wheel of Fortune) is a long-ish short story, written for the Splinters series of Dutch publisher Quasis, edited by Jasper Polane. It is exclusively available in Dutch.
Eventually Jant’s early adventures in Hacilith will appear as a full-length novel. But not just yet!
