The Book of the Kraken

April 6, 2021

So after all my bitching about vaccine envy, I got my shot today. J&J, one and done. Now to find my zen space. Whew.

To make the day even more exciting, my newest short story has gone live at Uncanny Magazine. “The Book of the Kraken” is about the War of 1812 but with a giant squid. Because why not? I hope you enjoy it!

In the category of “where do you get your ideas,” this one has a very specific answer, which is this picture:

Clearly, I needed to write a story about a girl and her squid. It took me a few years to pull it together (my niece is currently twice the age she is here), but I did it.

    How do you feel about eating out? After your two weeks.

    That was a beautiful story and extremely enjoyable to read. I still remember when you first made the squid and sent it to your niece. Also that first picture that showed it was as long as a couch.

    Glad you finally had a chance to write this story.
