My flash story, The Knot, just went live at Pantheon Magazine.
A few quick points about this one: one, even though it’s in a speculative zine, this is actually the first non-speculative story I’ve published in 15 years. Which is saying something. It actually felt a bit strange. Though, to be fair, it’s not entirely non-speculative either – it’s somewhat inspired by the myths of Persephone and Orpheus. Somewhat. Which I guess just goes to show that I can never quite rid myself of myth and fairy tale, not entirely, even when my words are wandering in the real world.
Second, this is one of many Persephone inspired stories in the issue – I’m delighted to be sharing a TOC with Megan Arkenberg again, and, for what I think is the first time, with Valya Dudycz Lupescu. Enjoy the issue! (Their stories will be available soon when the entire issue goes live – in the meantime, there’s another quick story by Kelley Archibald to enjoy.)
