Ka Sirtago is a character that I came up with years ago. He is the prince — the Ka — of the kingdom of Trigassa. Scarred from birth he is a fearsome sight to behold. He is also selfish, loud, rude and possesses great appetites for gambling, whores and food and drink. Sirtago’s bad qualities are tempered only by his childhood companion, Poet. Together they travel the world, having adventures and getting into a lot of trouble along the way.
The stories are sword and sorcery tales written in the pulp tradition of Weird Tales and of authors such as Robert E. Howard and Fritz Leiber. They have thrills and excitement but also a good deal of humour.
I published the first story, The Mark of Gennesh in an anthology called Kings of the Night under the pseudonym Jack Mackenzie. Since then I have published many stories under that name in different magazines and anthologies including four more Ka Sirtago stories.
An all- new Ka Sirtago and Poet adventure, THE GREEN BEAST is now available at Amazon .com exclusively for Kindle.
This is a sword and sorcery novella in the grand old pulp tradition of WEIRD TALES. Sirtago, the prince — the Ka — of the kingdom of Trigassa and his trusted companion, the sensitive and erudite scholar, Poet, travel from Trigassa to the neighboring castle ruled by the enigmatic Baron Ogmund.
But something is rotten in the castle of Baron Ogmund. Sirtago, the lusty Ka of the realm, and his sensitive companion, Poet, are onto a mystery involving a terrible green beast. The creature is killing the fishermen of the local village and the truth is so strange it will call into question everything, even the faithfulness of the Empress, Sirtago’s own mother!
