From time to time I’ll be bringing you what I consider to be, some of the best short stories out there. Stories you won’t find in magazines or books, only on the net. This weeks short is from:
Marie Brennan, an anthropologist and folklorist who shamelessly pillages her academic fields for material. Her short stories have sold to more than a dozen venues, including Talebones and On Spec, and a previous story set in the Driftwood world appeared in the Nov. 2008 issue of Intergalactic Medicine Show. She is currently working on a series of historical fantasies centering on the faerie court of London, beginning in the Elizabethan period with Midnight Never Come and continuing in the seventeenth century with In Ashes Lie, due out in 2009.
Her short story ‘Driftwood’ (sci-fi/fantasy) can be found here: http://www.beneath-ceaseless-skies.com/story.php?s=29
I suggest you check it out.
