Excerpts from the Diary of a Henchminion

A Free Short Story
by Sherwood Smith

Summoned, posted to Zorgon’s castle yestereve.

Looks good. Ancient stonework—cool—damp—busy dungeon. Pretty sure I’ve seen Nargul, Zorgon’s toady, before. The rest of the lads seem a decent lot—average burliness, medium ugly, all fun-loving.

Stood around the dungeon swilling beer and exchanging coarse jokes while the new prisoners were brought in. Promising first day.

A Free Short Story
by Sarah Zettel

Taken from the discussion pool housed at the Toc Kup Communication Facilitation Unit from the period between 10:20:18 to 11:06:21. Compiled by Shh Tchtik Tic, Third Depth Researcher.

10:20:18. From Toc Toc Kup, Learned Speaker. Addressing Kin of My Mind.

I was extremely disappointed when I listened to the 10:20:17 comments made by Shh Toc Ket. I recognize that this discussion pool is for open theorizing regarding the Un-Kin, but I did not think that included fantasizing by freshly graduated radicals.

Sometimes it’s what’s on the outside that matters.

Burned by a painful divorce, Garland Durrell is thankful to escape to a small village on Cape Cod to lick her wounds and sew the quilts that are her passion. But battered by storms and haunted by inexplicable deaths, Mattaquason is not the haven she thought it would be… especially when she’s the only one willing to help a man and small boy washed up on the beach, both badly wounded and with no memory of how they got there.

Alasdair cannot admit that he does remember. He and his son Conn are the last of a ruling family of selkies, locked in a struggle with an ancient evil that has all but destroyed his people and now threatens the human world. Only powerful magic can stop it, a magic the generous, blue-eyed human who saved him doesn’t know she possesses but which thrums in every thread she stitches.

But as the attraction between Garland and Alasdair grows, so does the danger. Only Garland and her quilts, made with a power she barely believes is real, can save them all…and give them the chance to find out whether a selkie and a human can, for once, live happily after.

Originally published 2016
