My short story, “The Chamber of Doors,” in which a traveling scholar pilfers a piece of fruit and discovers a unique flavor of justice, appears in the April 2010 edition of Bards & Sages Quarterly. The magazine is available as an electronic file in a variety of formats, including PDF and Kindle, for $4.99 (cheap!) and can also be purchased in print via Amazon.com for $10.49 (a beautiful, full-size, glossy-covered magazine that will look very stylish on your coffee table).
My story originated in a Liberty Hall Writers’ Forum flash challenge, and one of my associates at Liberty Hall, Christine Lucas, also appears in Bards & Sages with a mordant little tale of cats and their toys, “Jingle.” Read it with the lights on. Christine is a talented, up-and-coming spec fic writer whose work I’ve highlighted here previously in my Cool Stories series.
