My list of short story releases is as follows:
(most all of these are of the fantasy and dark fantasy genres):
December 20: “True Devotion” in Eternal Haunted Summer, Winter Solstice issue.
October 18: “What Sekhmet Keeps” reprinted in Daughter of the Sun.
September 14: Bicycle Requiem. (an ~9,000 word dark fantasy/horror novelette)
On the way home from a draining night of work, Theodora (called Teddy by her friends) finds herself guilty of something she’d never dreamed: a hit and run that results in a child’s death.
Wracked with guilt, Teddy hides her secret, carrying on as if nothing happened, but when the victim’s zombie returns, bringing along her own kind of disturbing justice, Teddy learns innocent little Mara isn’t exactly what she seemed.
And Teddy wonders, would jail be better than eternity with the vengeful girl’s accusing spectre.
Is it a small price to pay–and for what?
