Shout-Out: Writer Joe Pineda, Bard of Steel

I just got done reading The Contract, an excellent piece of flash fiction by fellow author/blogger Joe Pineda. (His blog is called Bard of Steel.)

It’s a very quick read, and I highly recommend it. His prose is terse and packs a punch. I especially like his use of metaphor and simile:

“He was like a dying lion: withered, stubborn and alone.”

“The point [of the pen] faced toward himself, as if he were handing this man a sword hilt-first.”

So def check it out folks! 🙂



  1. Wonderful post. Thanks for sharing. I look forward to your future writings.
