Stacked High: Issue 3: The Official Newsletter of Gilbert M. Stack

Greetings and welcome back to Stacked High. To celebrate the holiday season, I’m excited to release The Fire Islands, the first book in my Legionnaire series.

Lesser Tribune Marcus Venandus, Legion officer exemplar, was exiled to the disease-ridden hell hole known as the Fire Islands as punishment for the failed political machinations of his father. While the days of the powerful witchdoctor kings throwing skeletal armies against the shields of the legion have faded into history, all is not right at the edge of the world. Unrest is boiling once again as long dead darkness seeps back into the islands. With the legion more concerned with its personal rivalries than with its duty, it will fall to Marcus and his small, highly disciplined, command to put the horrors of the past back in their graves and literally save Aquila from a fate worse than death.  

The Fire Islands will be available for $2.99 starting December 1, but if you pre-order it during the month of November, you can get it for the reduced price of $1.49. You can find it at, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords and other e-sellers.

If you’re interested in a Christmas-themed story with plenty of action, you might try, A Taste of Yuletide Vengeance, found in my short story collection, Hearts of Ice and Other Stories.

It’s not a sweet tale, but if you enjoy rough justice in a holiday setting, you’re sure to be entertained by this 1920s era tale of ex-prizefighter Kit Moran’s efforts to pay back the mugger who victimized his mother. It’s also available at Amazon, iBooksBarnes and Noble, and Smashwords.

In between newsletters, please check out my webpage here at, for up to the minute news on my publications. You can also see my book reviews at Goodreads.

And here’s a sneak peek at the cover of Legionnaire #2 coming in February 2018.

I hope you have the Happiest of Holidays and a Prosperous New Year!
