Flesh and Fire: Book One of The Vineart War and Weight of Stone: Book Two of the Vineart War. The story I found, Crossroads, seamlessly intertwines the western and fantasy genres, reminiscent or Stephen King's Dark Tower series. I actually downloaded the podcast version so I could listen to it on my trip to Florida this December. It's a quick read at 2448 words, it's free, and it's a great story. What more do you want! Now you have something constructive to do for your next writing break.
