Welcome to the page for "Orcish Ways" an anthology of adventure. Included in this are ten original stories by me, Tom Doolan. Many were previously published individually through Amazon, and now they have all been gathered together in a single volume. In addition, I have added several new stories that were originally slated for Amazon publication, but will now be available exclusively here. And finally, each story is preceded by a short introduction discussing the origins and background of the writing of the story.

The price is $5.00 for PDF or Kindle (mobi) format, your choice. That's just 50 cents per story!

All you have to do is click here (or the button to the right) and you will be taken to PayPal. When you make your payment, be sure to include in the message which format you prefer, and if you want it sent to a different email than the one linked to your PayPal account (such as your Kindle address). Thank you for your support. And, if you are so inclined, please leave a review at GoodReads.

I just ordered a copy. I did send a note but just in case that didn't go through, I will need it in kindle format. Looking forward to reading. I've read some of these certainly.
