The Knight and the Princess

I've finally self-published more original short fiction! This time it's another novelette, and farther in the puzzle/game direction I Drank the Toxic Cocktail started last year. The long description I gave on my Smashwords page explains this in better detail.

What 2012's I Drank the Toxic Cocktail started, The Knight and the Princess continues in spirit, although it is no sequel. The Knight and the Princess uses a series of character descriptions, hypotheticals, cryptic messages and logic puzzles to advance the reader through its fairy tale storyline. Borrowing intellectually from literary criticism, political science and economics, The Knight and the Princess tells a familiar tale of love and war in an analytical way. The story is told not through adventure or dialogue but through the minds of the protagonists as they grapple with the collapse of the kingdom they hold dear.

It can be found for free here: Available in e-reader formats as well as ones you can read online or offline.
