The Stone Golem of Qual’Jom

The Stone Golem of Qual’Jom is a short story I completed in early 2012. I wrote the initial drafts a year earlier, in order to take a break from working on my larger, more complex novel.

After being summoned into existence, a stone golem reluctantly takes on the role of a servant in his master’s underground lair. But when the mysterious master leaves on a long journey, the golem begins to wonder what he was truly brought into existence for. Surrounded by lonely darkness, he waits for his master’s return, and struggles to fulfill his duty and defend the lair.

The Stone Golem of Qual’Jom examines human nature through the stone eyes of a creature seeking to understand his role in the world.

Instead of making this story available online, I’ve opted to try and sell it into the professional market. Wish me luck!
