Stories by Shannon Page

“Like a good glass of wine, a good short story offers complexity and buzz. When you finish a good story, you take a moment to savor the experience, to let the resonance of truth ring a bit before it fades. I know that, for me, there’s nothing like reading a last sentence that just nails the piece: reinforces a metaphor, adds weight to a conclusion. I can’t help but lean back and sigh with satisfaction when a piece just works.” –Janna Silverstein

A Heat Wave in the Hellers, and Other Tales of Darkover®

A Heat Wave in the Hellers by Deborah J. Ross

by Deborah J. Ross
$6.00 (Collection) ISBN 978-1-61138-775-9
A BVC Original

For the first time, here are all of Deborah J. Ross’s Darkover short stories, some of them previously unpublished, now collected in one volume.

In 1985, Deborah J. Ross sold her first Darkover to Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Free Amazons of Darkover. “Midwife” relates the adventures of a young woman who inadvertently becomes the surrogate mother of a banshee chick — a smelly, sightless, carnivorous bird. Bradley featured Ross’s short stories — dramatic, bittersweet, romantic, and humorous — in subsequent anthologies. Bradley often cited Ross’s turnabout-twist story, “The Death of Brendon Ensolare,” as one of her favorites. Eventually the two collaborated on novel-length works set in the world of the Bloody Sun. Following Bradley’s death in 1999, Ross has continued the series, as well as “paying forward” as the editor of anthologies such as Stars of Darkover and Crossroads of Darkover. For the first time, here are all of Ross’s Darkover short stories, some of them previously unpublished, now collected in one volume.
