Slowly, I put the book down and gulped nervously, eyes wide open, because I remembered: the rest of my family was out at the movies.(less)

Cloak (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:37PM
Description: Originally published February 28, 2011, on the Internet at http://trollfic.wordpress.com/2011/02/28/wolf-and-girl-stories/, as part of a contest run by Ken St. Andre to write "flash fiction" inspired by a picture. I submitted this story to explain the picture, which I've shown as the cover image to this piece of writing. The story takes place in the world of Trollworld, the setting for the fantasy role-playing game, Tunnels & Trolls, which was inflicted upon the real world by Ken St. Andre in the 1970s and thrives today through a loyal fanbase and several updated versions over the past several decades. Incidentally, three stories were submitted for this first round of flash fiction, a handful of votes were cast, and my story won. I spent my $5 winnings on something Ken offered for sale from his "Troll Cave" of treasures later on in the year.

David is 9% done with Space Opera: Oh good Lord, I love this author. She's out-Adamsing Douglas with her similes, fractally nested sentence structure, and bat-shit craziness. But where Adams veered off into sarcasm, Valente piles on a generous helping of her characteristic heart, which Adams' fiction rather lacked. Such a breath of fresh air, and exhilarating!

“Adults buy presents for kids to remember their own childhoods and remember how much fun it was to play, how much fun it was to pretend. I think we try to buy back our imagination around the holidays.”

“A baby was a fact. It was a being with a mind and a nature, and you could feel about it any way you liked, but a baby wouldn't care. Just by existing, it demanded that you believe in a future: the future it would crawl in, walk in, live in. A baby was a piece of time; it was a promise you made that the world made back to you.”
Justin Cronin, The Passage
