(Micro)Flash Fiction Friday – The Wood

Doing a bit of flash fiction today on the micro level – only 237 words. The featured image was posted in a Facebook group with the prompt of “Who do you suppose lives here?” I’d been wanting to write something, specifically something short that would fit in a Facebook post but hadn’t actually sat down to do so. Now that I have, I present to you: The Wood.

Flash Fiction: Going Home

Well, I totally forgot to post this last month. We skipped May due to our scheduled meeting date falling on Mother’s Day and the library not having an opening on other dates, so we met in June. This should have been posted in July at the latest but… well, we all know how well I remember things. Anyway, the prompt was centered around Midsummer (or the summer solstice). I wanted the day to be important in a magical sense but wasn’t sure how I was going to use it. What I ended up with owes some credit to Seanan McGuire’s Wayward Children series.

Rec a Series is a monthly post highlighting one of my favorite series, past or present. This month’s spotlight is on a lesser known series by one of my favorite urban fantasy authors. Best known for their kick-ass heroine Kate Daniels, the husband/wife team of Ilona Andrews also created a world of multiple dimensions. The Broken—a world without magic but with things like cell phones and Walmart. Our world. The real world? Then there’s the Weird where magic runs high. Bluebloods rule, changelings are shut away as children and trained to be an elite but expendable fighting force, and the air force consists of griffins. But the most fascinating stories? Those dwell in the Edge. Continue reading “Rec a Series: The Edge”

Rec a Series: The Iron Druid Chronicles

Rec a Series is a monthly post highlighting one of my favorite series, past or present. I’m a sucker for stories that meddle with history. I’m really a sucker for those that play around with mythology. When I stumbled across one that not only plays with one myth but with every single one imaginable, I knew I’d found a favorite. Having a hilariously pervy hound doesn’t hurt, either. Continue reading “Rec a Series: The Iron Druid Chronicles”
