Pardon my pimpage.
The official blurb for Weirdly: A Collection of Strange Stories reads, in part: From sci-fi to paranormal to weird, from chilling to odd to scary, Weirdly will sate your lust for strangeness in bite-sized pieces. Each tale weaves its own spell. Vampires, beasts, ghosts, evil creatures and, of course, every day people inhabit Weirdly's pages...
You may read the full blurb at the link on the left.
Since my urban fantasy short story, Stone Child, is included in the Weirdly anthology, I thought I should provide you with a sublurb for it as well.
When accredited Talent and clairvoyant Lillie St. Claire is sent to Wild Man Mountain to find a lost child, she expects the search to end in the sad but routine task of discovery by ghost. She does not expect to find a stone child, cold murder, or a slavering of trolls bent on blood-justice.
Lillie St. Claire is one of those seditious characters who sometimes step out of a WIP (A Malignity of Ghosts) and who won't shut up and go away after one has typed End.
It's not that she's agressive, really - more at quietly insistent.
This weekend I have been fleshing and flensing another of her stories. One of dark loss, exorcism, pain and love.
And I don't know what to call them. Adventures seems too high and wide a word, like most of the usual choices.
I'm in need of an appropriate synonym.
