Greetings folks. I’m Stuart McEwan, a prolific daydreamer, beard bearer and proud purveyor of fantasy.
Born in 1986 in the Midlands of England, I am, have been and always will be a lover of rich lore, fascinating stories and colourful, if somewhat occasionally devious, characters. Whether in book, film, television or gaming form, the tales told over numerous mediums of entertainment have inspired a consumer of fantasy and a writer of fiction. I have spent a vast sum of my time contemplating the crafting of epic worlds and how best to bring them and the characters within them to life to fulfil my creative designs.
Here, in my own little candlelit corner of the web, I will bring to you several of my stories and a plethora of lore from the world of Ayl’gard. It is a realm of fantasy fiction that I have been steadily working on since I wrote my first character all the way back in 2012 and through my work, I hope to be able to show you some of the fragments that were forged from my reverie, hence the title of the site.
I may also muse and write about other subjects from time to time like what it was or is that makes me do what I do, an appreciation for the works of others and sometimes even the weather. No true denizen of England can exist for too long without mentioning the wet stuff that drizzles out of the sky after all.

So folks, pull up a chair, light a candle or two of your own (you know, for ambience) and please enjoy.
