William C. Cronk

Born at a very young age in a place just north of nowhere, William was raised in a small rustic village whose name had larger expectations than its inhabitants. Being so far from anything interesting, William soon discovered he had a great imagination and spent far more time building fantasy worlds than dealing with the real one. An agricultural wage-slave during the day, and an avid role-player, world builder, professional game master, cartographer, poet and day dreamer by evening, William is finally listening to his friends and is taking some of those worlds he has created and is putting them to paper. Past short stories include “Linear Rotation” published in the Anthology Sylvermoon Chronicles Volume VII and “Not the One” soon to be published in the anthology Sylvermoon Chronicles Volume VIII. Currently William lives in the Greater Toronto Area with his very patient and understanding wife, and their four not-so-patient cats.

Get Willian’s story, Bands of Gold, in Hidden Magic.


Matasa, a young goatherd of the Seven Peoples, leaves his small tribal village to make the sacred pilgrimage to the Golden City in hopes of being chosen by the deity of the Great Sun, Anuu, and given the ability to work magic. While in the city, politics, prejudice, intrigue and human nature attempt to sway the young goatherd who soon finds himself pulled between his desires to become a mage-priest and his steadfast moral convictions in Hidden Magic.
