Two small things today:
One, Stealing Tales, another very short story up at Daily Science Fiction, loosely inspired by one event in Hans Christian Anderson’s “The Snow Queen.”
And two, my little poem, Burning, is now available at Wild Musette, with a lovely illustration.
Up at Daily Science Fiction this morning, a little thing I wrote about a homeowner association and a unicorn. Enjoy!
Also, if for some reason you missed my story, Deathlight, out in Lightspeed Magazine last year, it’s now been turned into an audio play by the folks over at Fancy Pants Gangsters. They have a number of other short audio plays up at their site as well – enjoy!
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.)
Just in time for the holiday shopping season, my little story about a store that doesn’t like to stay in one place, or sell the usual sorts of things.
Beans and Lies just went up at Daily Science Fiction. It’s quite short, I promise. And it’s almost a fairy tale. Almost.
Happy Pancake Day!
1. My flash fiction story, Undone, just popped up over at Apex Magazine. Enjoy!
2. And over at Unlikely Story, an interview with me turned into a complaint about finding a rhyme for “clown.” I don’t know how these things happen, honestly.
My little flash fiction story, “Toads,” is now available at Daily Science Fiction’s website. Enjoy!
“Toads” is part of an ongoing series of flash fiction fairy tales that I hope to finish one day. In the meantime, I’m glad to have this one hopping out into the world.
(Puns are my evil drug. Sorry.)
