Many beautiful things are coming this fall and winter. Here are but a few:
The Dark #2 arrives in December, containing my story “Wrought Out From Within Upon the Flesh.” This story is a departure for me; not in that it’s weird or creepy…that seems the default these days…but in that it explores a point of view I’ve never looked closely at before, that of the abused partner in a relationship. Why does she stay? What if the abuse caused something beautiful to break from her skin? What if she grew stronger than she ever imagined? I appreciate Ellen Datlow’s input on this one; she helped me craft a stronger tale!
Dead North is available now and contains my story “The Sea Half-Held by Night.” Do you know where that tile comes from? Click through to read more! This was a story I never intended to write, and is now one of my favorites.
And soon? Joan of Arc and a mammoth named King Charles, in Sword & Mythos. Because who doesn’t want to read about Joan riding a mammoth and trying to save the world while she’s already dead?
