The Lost Worlds of Power: Volume 0 is neither a prequel nor sequel to The Lost Worlds of Power. It’s a companion piece, consisting of stories that were nearly included in the main volume, but ended up not making it in for one reason or another.
It’s also a Groupees exclusive, which means that once the bundle is gone, so is the book. Forever. So pick it up, because not only do you get Volume 0 — containing five unique stories, Mishi Hime’s gorgeous cover art, and loving illustrations by lovable illustrator Ron DelVillano — but you’ll get some other great stuff from the other bundle contributors, with all proceeds benefiting Edward “JuJu” Sutton, Jr. Edward, three years old, fell out of a window last month and is in desperate need of medical help. Not one dime goes to myself or the authors of these stories; all of it goes to Edward. Thank you in advance for helping him. Every dollar makes a difference.
Regarding the stories here, James Lawless (co-editor) and I (co-co-editor) had a lot of difficulty selecting the stories that would be included in The Lost Worlds of Power. Not all of our decisions came down to quality. Sometimes it came down to approach. If two stories seemed to be reaching for similar effects, we only wanted to include one of them, for the sake of variety. In other cases, stories of shorter length just felt a bit out of place next to the much longer ones that we found ourselves most compelled to include.
Volume 0, then, was a pleasantly surprising opportunity in so many ways. A few stories we liked but didn’t end up choosing fit perfectly in this slimmer collection. It took on a whole personality of its own. And I’ve personally contributed a brand new story to cap it off, which I hope you enjoy as much as I hated writing it.
Remember, Volume 0 is available for a limited time only. Grab it while you can. It’s for a good cause. And you just might get a few laughs along the way.
