*Snoopy dance* Innsmouth Free Press has accepted my story ‘Rising, Not Dreaming’ for their Feb 2011 issue. I’m very excited because (a) this story was commissioned, so it’s nice to know it was “okay”, and (b) it’s my first ever Cthulhu story.
Here is a snippet:
‘Play,’ they said and I did, plucking at a harp made of bone and sinew.
‘Sing,’ they said and I did, weaving words with water and making my listeners weep. I drew from their depths, from souls no one suspected, the dreams that might make them slumber. I surrounded them with lullabies to send gods to sleep, to keep them below and render them harmless to all that breathed above.
