Quote from: Patty Briggs
Adventures of Sword and Sorcery, #6: My first short-story sale. The story was called Wishing Well.

We'd asked Mike and Patty if we'd ever be able to read the story since AOS&S is long out of print. They kindly contacted her agent with the question. News from Mike regarding WW:

Patty's agent gave the thumbs - up, so Wishing Well is now available on the hurog site.  You can get to it from the books page, or just go here.  Enjoy!

Thank you, Mike and Patty! And Patty's agent! :)
