Midwinter Fae

I’m so very pleased to be part of this new anthology edited by Jamie Ferguson. It features 19 tales of faeries and magic at Midwinter.

On the day of the shortened sun
A battle between two kings has begun. 
The old year dies, and the Oak King rules
We celebrate with logs of Yule! 
But the Holly King is defeated, not dead 
To Caer Arianrhod he heads. 
Until Midsummer, when they battle again 
And the Holly King will once again reign…

It features “Midwinter Run,” my brand new short story, plus stories by Dalye A. Dermatis, Diana Benedict, Leah Cutter, Leslie Claire Walker, Eric Kent Edstrom, Ron Collins, Rei Rosenquist, Karen L. Abrahamson, Deanna Knippling, Anthea Sharp, Deb Logan, T. Thorn Coyle, Jamie Ferguson, Kristine Katherine Rusch, Rebecca Senese, Stefon Mears, Brigid Collins and Alexandra Brandt.

All that, and a gorgeous cover, too!

The Verdant Gene

FR Moonscapes ebook cover webI may have died and gone to Heaven. The Fiction River anthology: Moonscapes has just been released and my short story, “The Verdant Gene,” is in it. Not only am I chuffed to have made it into a Fiction River anthology, but I am humbled at the company my story will be keeping there: Annie Reed, Steven Mohan, Jr., Scott William Carter, Kristine Kathryn Rusch… and that’s just to name a few.

Here’s the blurb:

We all look up at the moon and wonder. And maybe dream. For centuries, the moon  filled our imaginations. Eleven professional writers took those dreams and set  original stories on moons scattered all over the galaxy. Yet, as the dreams of centuries, every story holds a human touch. From a mythical man fulfilling a
childhood wish to a fantastic addition to Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s bestselling Retrieval Artist series, this volume of Fiction River allows you to travel to eleven different moons without leaving the comfort of home.

Fiction River is an original fiction anthology series. Modeled on successful anthology
series of the past, from Orbit to Universe to Pulphouse: The Hardback Magazine, the goal of Fiction River is to provide a forum for “original ground-breaking fiction of all genres.”
