Prose and Conjuring

December 28, 2016


If you're chasing tale, it ought to be a fairy tale you're after.

Before I get ahead of myself, I should announce that enchanting editor Sacchi Green has fabricated yet another electrifying anthology, this one called Witches, Princesses, and Women at Arms.

To keep it personal, add "SWF Seeks FGM" to the announcement, for that is the title of my contribution.

Queer's the story: Single wicked female the Wicked Stepmother is known for being straightforward. But going forward, she is no longer straight. Not since reaching the realization that happiness is a necessary evil. And who better to help her realize this happiness than the Fairy Godmother...?

Think this pairing is unimaginable?

Well, as FGMs are prone to proclaim: Impossible things are happening every gay.

A shorter, sweeter version of this piece first bewitched readers in the Bold Strokes Books book Myth and Magic. Following its release, I boldly stroked the words some more, witchcrafting a tale whose depth was more desirable and whose characters were more desirous.

If you desire this anthology, you may experience wish fulfillment come May.

Until then, you will have to wait _______.

Patiently?

Anxiously?

Heroically?

Go on -- villain the blank.

I'll wait.

Curiously.

Curiouser and curiouser,
