I’ve just now found out that my fantasy/fable “Such Stuff As Dreams Are Made On,” which is more or less about painful memories, magical transformations and complex healing with a side of craft fairs, small-town curiosity and Shakespeare, was published in Mythic Magazine #8 back in January.
I’ve always been interested in the complicated stories people carry, and in what happens when someone else really hears those stories; and I like fantasy partly because it gives permission to make some of the possible consequences visible. (Well, I like relatively quiet psychological fantasy for that reason. I like fantasy with dragons because a world in which dragons were not imagined would be a much poorer world. But there are no dragons in this piece.)
