Preface

As most of you who are reading this already know, I've been writing comedy shorts featuring my favorite Phantasy Star character, Alys Brangwin, and her encounters with OC hunter Joss Howland since 2000. Only since 2007, though, have I been posting those stories here at fanfiction-dot-net , so only the most recent stories have been posted here.

Meanwhile, when I've been writing such stories for other fandoms, I've collected them in single-story collections, rather than posting each as its own story—"Vivio's Happy Family Magical Theater," "Duran and Kiyohime's Omake Theater," "The Omake of the Godless Month," and "The Tome of Eldritch Omake." This seems to me to be a better way to organize these short-shorts and drabbles, which often don't rise even to 1,000 words in length. I wish I'd done it from the start. But, at least I can learn from my mistakes! So from now on, all of the Alys and Joss stories will be collected here in the "Tales from the Guild Bar." As an added bonus, every time I post my newest chapter here, I'll also add several of my older Alys & Joss stories, the ones that were never posted at before, for the benefit of those of you who never got the chance to see them (or for those who did, but would like to revisit them).

Enjoy!
