My WOTF workshop 24 hour story, "The Eyes of Hemshat", is available now at Abyss & Apex. Fun fact: it was actually about 1k words longer when I wrote it (in 24 hours) and was definitely the longest story written my year. ... f-hemshat/

Probably free for critique swaps, but double-check in case I'm away.
If you're a new writer and concerned about giving a critique, you're welcome to send me something anyway. :)

I just received a “didn’t win me over,” from F&SF. It’s my first one of those. I always get “didn’t quite grab me,” with one or two comments.

Anyway, on to another day.
For there is death in the sound of it, and a glamorous fatality, like silver pennons downrushing at sunset, or a dying fall of horns along the road to Ronceveaux.

The only easy day was yesterday.
