Rolo the Great

Short Story by Annie Reed

$2.99 available in bundle


A heart-warming tale from Annie Reed, one of the founding members of The Uncollected Anthology, a quarterly publication of short fiction some of the best writers working in urban fantasy today.

Rolo, a diminutive, courtly peddler of tourist trinkets, has at long last found the woman of his dreams.

Unfortunately, she’s trapped in the belly of a brass pig.

In a world filled with magic, a man with none finds himself at a distinct disadvantage.  Not that Rolo would ever let a little thing like that stop him. For even a small man can accomplish great things in the name of love.
