There Are Sharks in the Water, and You Smell of Blood (II)

Part I of this story can be found here.    Dear Samwell, I most certainly did mean what I said. But then, you’re unlikely to believe me if I tell you water is wet, so we are, as always, at an impasse. Please do thank Drake for the scarf he…

There Are Sharks in the Water, and You Smell of Blood (I)

Dear Evermyn, I don’t know that you could possibly mean what you said in your last letter. I read it in the clearing, sitting on that old stump you like so much. The trees leaned away from it as if I were holding live flames in my hand rather than…

Ayala Storme Prepares for the Re-Stormening!

HALLO HUMANS   It’s been quiet around these parts. I’ve been incubating stuff. New books, short stories (move your butt over to Patreon if you want to catch up with lots of fiction!), cats, mawwaige (evidence below), and a big impending move to Scotland.     There are approximately thirteen…

These Purple States of America

  Here, America. Have some context. This is more what you look like. Not that sea of red with little blue islands I’ve seen making the rounds. Not a checkered map of red and blue states. There is not a state in this country that isn’t purple. I’ve spent the…
