At the End of the World

Revealing the debut novel by Kevin J. Fellows


Modern Folklore Press is excited to share the cover for At the End of the World, the upcoming fantasy novel from Kevin J. Fellows—available on October 21, 2020.

Nothing but silence, heat, and wind. The road was empty except for João and King Sebastião. It could only be purgatory. “Perhaps,” João said. “We really have died, and this is the realm of sleeping kings.”

A wayward city spinning through time and place connects and draws travelers; trapping them with no way to return home. 

Each traveler: Nico the peddler, Stina the university graduate, João, Lieutenant for the King of Portugal, and Croydon, a boy at the edge of adolescence, face a choice: stay in the strange medieval city where magic infects and wealth is not measured in coin, or leave to find a new home in the next time and place.

Many arrivals accept the city’s magic, others are rejected by it. A few desire it for themselves, and one seeks to destroy it. Disrupting the magic could trigger the unmaking of the city and the world containing it.

Kevin J. Fellows writes fiction about ordinary people in places that might have been or could be. Stories about people struggling through strange and impossible situations; about how they build relationships and learn to use the magic of their world to find their way. He is also a poet and his poetry has appeared in Star*Line and his short collection An Important Sky. He lives in the desert southwest, but was born in the wilds of New Hampshire, and has lived in New York and Boston.
