an incomplete announcement

The stories, and the collection, are all submitted, but some systems are still percolating them through. So -- I will announce more later, including the print -- but here are the locations where you can buy those available now:



Journeys and Wizardry
The collection of all the reprints, including a high fantasy about dragons, a contemporary fantasy, and a poem not available individually.

"The Turtle in the Sea of Sand"
"The sea of sand touched many shores -- the meanest beggar's brat knew that -- and many sands drifted up from them, but Persinette always maintained that black sand meant death, and mingled with red, a bloody death."

Kyre still had to work for his living. Even it meant taking a job from a wizard. . . .

"Lifestone"
A mysterious castle holds an evil wizard.

How evil -- the knights only learn when they come to the very gate, where he can wield the Lifestone.

"Free Passage"

When you want to pass the lands of the Amazons, you can ask to be allowed to just sail by. Chloe wants to try it, as the only sane route.

But when their queen dies, it won't merely be for the asking.

"The Drunken Mermaids"

Shipwreck is not enough -- though no ship will sail by, the mermaids have found the stranded sailors.

And worse, the cargo of wines and liquors is seeping into the sea.

"Magic of the Lost God"

The ruins held an ancient magic.

Alice Ladybird learns that her stepsister learned it. And is using it without shame or pity.

What she has not learned is how to stop her.

"Crow Curse"
An ancestor's folly, stealing from a dead wizard, left them all turning to crows daily and bitterly attacking any of their number who stole from the dead.

Yet a dying wizard may hold the key of escape. . . .
Amazon

Kobo

"Were I You"

The Fair Folk live in the neighborhood, disreputable with their magic, and Rosemary Whitney ignores them as best she can, like all respectable people.

But Old Peg starts to tell a story, about changelings, and whether Rosemary Whitney is herself, or Old Peg's daughter Mad Nan. . . .

"Isabelle and the Siren"

Isabelle had come to the seaside to rest while she suffered melancholia.

But a haunting song wafts over the village one day, ready to lure all to danger.

"Never Comment On A Likeness"

She knows that it is magic, but what magic is it?

Have the Good Folk made her baby look differently than he had before?

Or had they snatched him entirely, and left a changeling in his place?

And what can she do against Sir David's sly comments on how he can help her?
Amazon

"Where There Is Smoke "

Who but her old master can tell Marisa what secrets lie in the spellbook that even the Nameless Necromancer kept hidden away?

Amazon

"One Name"
What a relief it was when the woman, how mysterious she was, offered to stand as godmother for the baby no one could provide for.

Such a relief that only the little girl's mother thinks to wonder why this woman is so intent on having a baby with the same name as herself. And no one else notices the magic on her sledge.
