  • Outsider: A Stone Rider story

  • A gritty and action-packed short story, set in the world of STONE RIDER.

    Welcome to Providence - a town divided.

    On the north side of the main road, the Dog Tribe rules. On the south side, the Snakes run the show. Raised on a spit of land above an endless desert sea, this town attracts only the meanest kind. There's no good and bad here, only different shades of evil.

    Oleander 'Dead Eye' Salt and her best friend Brune Skye while away their days getting themselves in and out of trouble and keeping the town boys at bay. But all that changes when a loner drifts into town. A kid with wolf-yellow eyes.

    His name is Kane.

    Kane stirs up more than trouble in Providence - he stirs up bad memories. 'Dead Eye' will have to earn her name or go the way of many others. But something about Kane stays her hand. Something buried deep in her past, waiting to resurface...
