The latest issue of the Fiction River anthology series, Hex in the City includes the short story “Fox and Hound” by BVC’s Leah Cutter.
This issue includes fourteen stories by a diverse group of authors including Kristine Katherine Rusch, Jay Lake, Dean Wesley Smith, and Seanan McGuire.
Cutter’s story is set in modern day Beijing, following the adventures of Gou, a peddle cab owner. In her words:
“I wrote, and threw out, three other beginnings to this story. The process felt as though I was circling in, getting closer and closer, until I finally had Gou in the train station with his fare beside him. That theme continues throughout the story as well, circling and circling, as Gou tries to corner his prey.”
