The Story that Created  Andor

Once I wrote a short story that sold to a British epub, Spectra Magazine (2010).

The publication is long gone and the rights reverted to me. So, I self-published the story.

 Who does Gillen, leader of the Trebridge gargoyles fight first? The invading demons? Or, his second who's plotting to replace him?

Demons and imps prey upon the city of Trebridge. Gillen, leader of the four Gargoyle Guardians, asks the angels for reinforcements because St. Edmund's church--the sanctuary that guards the known portal into city--is being destroyed to make way for high-rise condos. Only his rival, Orvil, plots to replace Gillen because he thinks Gillen incompetent.
