I sometimes write stories set in a polytheistic world where angels are a theological and objective physical reality, created by the gods as their servants. The Benarians are convinced that they are the favoured people of the gods, while angels recruit and drop a word, or a scroll, in the ears of the wise to influence events and outside the bounds of creation the vard plot to undo everything. This is the home of Tala, the angel in service to Thaladaneth, The Thirteenth Swordlord known also as The Black Scabbard.
The stories in this universe so far are:
Finding Something To Run To;
A Philosophical Discussion;
Back When There Was Water On The Moon;
A Staff With a Knob On It;
Initial Orders; and
