The Duke of Vertumn's Fingerling is over at Strange Horizons

A wondrous-strange story by Elizabeth Carroll (of my Clarion South 09 class) is now out in the world. Go. Look.

After I opened my eyes they dressed me in silk. A bone-white gown slipped over my head and I raised my arms for it like a child. With my hair undone, I must have looked like a bride. I was nothing of the kind.

My gown hung on me like a sugar bag. I stood in scraps and patches of fabric. I bound ribbon around my waist, and crossed it over and over between breast and hip. I would be presentable if nothing else.

I was barely minutes old.
