Obligatory Eligibility Post: 2018
'Tis the season, I guess! I always forget about it until I see social media buzz, and I wonder if I ever would get around to making these posts if I didn't see other people get around to it as well.
In 2018 I published two cute stories and one dark one:
"When the Bough Breaks" in Mythic Delirium, a story about hostile spirits terrorizing children in a high-rise luxury condominium.
"A Field of Sapphires and Sunshine" in Glass and Gardens: Tales of Solarpunk Summers, my second foray into solarpunk. It's about an international student returning home to her family's business, dwelling on a breakup while on her solar-dirigible ride home.
"Magic Potion Behind-the-Mountains" in Beneath Ceaseless Skies, which follows the misadventures of a young magistrate as he struggles to learn the recipe for a magic potion in the rural hinterlands of his assigned county.
I doubt these will rouse anything more than a murmur, but I'm fairly proud of myself for getting these out! 2017 was a difficult year for me as I pushed out my dissertation, so having so many stories coming out after it (which was also a hard year for many different reasons) pleases me.
