Fantasy Historical Romance steampunk fantasy romance cat

Last week, I posted "Thin Man," a dark fantasy set in Victorian London about a climbing boy named Dodd. Decades later, I was invited to submit a story to THE SHADOW CONSPIRACY steampunk anthology, and it occurred to me that Dodd's story wasn't finished yet. So I wrote "The Soul Jar." Out of all my short stories, this one is my favorite. See if you agree. THE SHADOW CONSPIRACY is still in print at Book View Cafe: https://bookviewcafe.com/bookstore/book/the-shadow-conspiracy/

Fantasy Historical steampunk collaboration voice

I love collaborative writing--to me, it combines everything I love best about writing (creation, imagination, that indefinable spark) with everything I love best about editing (figuring out another creative person’s mind and working out how best to express it). Plus, it’s just fun to play together. This story was written for Gears and Levers Volume 1, from Sky Warrior, April 2012, and reprinted in my collection Eastlick and Other Stories, 2013.
