New Story: Boat in Shadows, Crossing at Beneath Ceaseless Skies

My novelette ‘Boat in Shadows, Crossing’ appears in the latest issue of Beneath Ceaseless Skies, home of the finest literary adventure fantasy on the web. Click here to read it!

This is my first professional fiction credit, and I’m thrilled that it’s in such a splendid magazine – one that’s published some of my favourite short story writers including Yoon Ha Lee and Aliette de Bodard, to name just two.

‘Boat in Shadows, Crossing’ is set in my weird fantasy city The Town Where Salt-Plums Grow, a setting which has been mulling and mutating in my dreams since I was 14 or so. It’s a story about love, ghosts, transformation, and a predatory boat. It starts:

Come, let me whisper you a tale of the city where I was born, the Town Where Salt-Plums Grow. A summer tale: dark and succulent, with a bite of chill—the kind we love to tell on warm thick nights…

  1. Just the story I needed today, thank you so much! So much room for wonder, so much room to exhale.

    Deep bow,
