The Stump and the Spire is a pair of short stories set in the Book of Deacon setting. Both stories in the collection were originally released in larger anthologies. The Stump and the Spire - Set long after the events of the Book of Deacon Trilogy, the titular story of the collection tells the tale of two children who find a mysterious book and wand buried on their farm. The artifacts seem to have a connection to the largely misunderstood history of their world, and may carry a threat for the future. This story was originally released in Neverland's Library. Seeking the Shadow - A legendary assassin called the Red Shadow has plagued the Northern Alliance for decades. Desmeres Lumineblade has been after him for far too long to let him slip through his fingers this time. This story was originally released in Blackguards: Tales of Assassins, Mercenaries, and Rogues, a Stabby Award-winning short story collection.
