Their village starving, a desperate hunting party sets off in search for food. Trailing their prey to the foot of Horn Forest, the trio find themselves faced with two choices: turn back in shame with nothing, or, venture into the woods of the hooved folk.
A native of San Antonio, Texas, C. W. “Clint” Stevenson resides there with his wife, son, and their retinue of furry companions. New to the writing scene, he writes primarily science fiction, fantasy, and horror. In 2022 his story “After the Siege” won the prize for second place in The National Fan Federation Short Story Contest. His work can be found in Alien Dimensions, Illustrated Worlds, and the Wicked Shadow Press anthology: Abominable. With several short stories pending release in 2023, Clint is hard at work on a science fiction novella featuring his established intergalactic game warden character, Oden Grey, as well as working on his first novel, a grimdark piece called "The Swordsman" set in the same world as “Gone Hunting” that will no doubt become an international bestseller…or at least he hopes so.

---- About Tall Tale TV ----
Hi there! My name is Chris Herron and I'm an audiobook narrator. In 2015, I suffered from poor Type 1 diabetes control which lead me to become legally blind for almost a year. The doctors didn't give me much hope, predicting an 80% chance that I would never see again. But I refused to give up and changed my lifestyle drastically. Through sheer willpower (and an amazing eye surgeon) I beat the odds and regained my vision.
During that difficult time, I couldn't read or write, which was devastating as they had always been a source of comfort for me since childhood. However, my wife took me to the local library where she read out the titles of audiobooks to me. I selected some of my favorite books, such as the Disc World series, Name of the Wind, Harry Potter, and more, and the audiobooks brought these stories to life in a way I had never experienced before. They helped me through the darkest period of my life and I fell in love with audiobooks.
Once I regained my vision, I decided to pursue a career as an audiobook narrator instead of a writer. That's why I created Tall Tale TV, to support aspiring authors in the writing communities that I had grown to love before my ordeal. My goal was to help them promote their work by providing a promotional audio short story that showcases their writing skills to readers. They say the strongest form of advertising is word of mouth, so I offer a platform for readers to share these videos and help spread the word about these talented writers.
Please consider sharing these stories with your friends and family to support these amazing authors. Thank you!
