About the Book:

They say that people go there when they’re ready to die. They say Death himself is a patron. That’s where the tavern gets its name. Azrael’s Stop. Watering hole for the Angel of Death. But that’s just rumour. Ceph doesn’t trade in rumour. He just serves drinks. Except, of course, that every couple of weeks, someone dies at Azrael’s Stop. ~ This is the story of the Stop and the people drawn to a tavern surrounded in death. The seventeen-year-old bartender who has seen all his loved ones die. The depressed old man, whom death will not take. The boy who visits every day—though he died a year ago. The blind minstrel who saw war too young. And the hooded crow who watches over all, and caws only when someone dies in Azrael’s Stop. Each with a past that haunts them, a story to tell, and a need to find something to live for or something to die for.

Author's Note:

Azrael's Stop is an experimental fiction project that I'm producing under my transmedia storytelling business Silverstring Media. It's primarily a serial microfiction story -- daily real-time entries of only a few sentences -- augmented with music, short stories, art, audio play, games, and more. You can get the whole thing and the bonus material as it's released at http://azraelsstop.com, but as my ultimate goal is to publish the whole, I will be posting the compilations here for critique! It's very experimental, and would love any comments.
