A new short story collection!
For those of you who want to read more about Irene Kelly, "The Anchorwoman," a new short story about her, is out now in Convicted. It's one of four stories in the ebook collection, which costs $1.99.
In "The Anchorwoman," Irene is a journalism student who hears a comically strange story from someone she knew in high school—a story that Irene comes to believe is no laughing matter.
The collection also includes three stories from Eighteen: "Revised Endings," "The Muse," and "Devotion." "Devotion" features Frank Harriman, Ben Sheridan, and Bingle.
Convicted is the fourth of six short story collections. Previous titles are Caught Red-Handed; Apprehended; and Tried.
Edited by Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner
Games Creatures Play features a wide array of short stories set in supernatural worlds and with all kinds of fun, games, and sports. Jan chose to write about dodgeball for her story, "Stepping into the Dead Zone." Read it just to find out how she managed to weave fairies, knights, squires, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Vietnam War, and two famous poems ("Der Erlkönig" and "The Stolen Child") into one short story!
"Jan Burke's [story] employs impressive world-building in a small package."
