Well, you found the right page, but the story you were looking for isn’t here anymore. This is not a Jedi mind trick. You are probably here because you learned about “Maia” from the author’s notes of the Muirwood Trilogy and did a Google search for it. I had posted this story on-line, in this exact spot, for several years, but have now taken it down.
Jet City Comics is creating a graphic novel based on the story “Maia” – the new title will be “Muirwood: The Lost Abbey”. You can order it here
This graphic novel is the beginning of the Covenant of Muirwood trilogy.
If you’d like to read the original story “Maia”, I have also published it as an e-book version here
