The World is Filled with Monsters

Vermilion didn’t join the Guard to be a hero. He just wanted to escape the farm and his old, boring life.

But now it seems he may have no choice – his unit is being sent to Hollow Shades, a tiny hamlet hidden in the depths of an endless forest, to fight monsters on behalf of Luna and Celestia. When the mission turns into a disaster and the town is lost, Vermilion finds himself at the forefront of an unexpected war, with all of Equestria at stake.

A new dark age has begun. Heroes must be found to guard the flickering lights of civilization. And Vermilion and his friends will discover that monsters are the least of their worries.


Set in the years before Nightmare Moon’s banishment, The World is Filled with Monsters follows a young hero and his friends as they struggle to protect a newfound nation – and discover the cost of greatness.


Two hundred years ago, an American president said it was not America's mission to journey abroad in search of monsters to destroy. America would offer moral support to the world's fight for liberty, but we would not crusade on its behalf.

There was a hole in it, poked by some piece of shrapnel, but the wound had already closed and there were no obvious signs of infection or disability. Instead he had an X-ray from the local hospital that showed a light smudge just a few inches beneath the skin, in the fleshy part of the shoulder around where doctors give your influenza shot.

Ach, why was I not following you? I blame the Russian hackers.

Sounds like something on the cover of a 1960s sci-fi novel.

I dreamt we collabed on a 12 panel semi-abstract landscape painting.
