the Author

A short story of 9.5k words, orig­i­nally published in Elf Fantastic, edited by Martin H. Green­berg & Larry Segriff

An elderly woman walking the old ways comes to the Faerie circles to die — so that the child she carries, the last of her kin, might live.

With her life as the payment, the Fey take the newborn infant into the court of their Queen, to watch her grow, age, and die — for mortality fasci­nates those whom age does not change.

But the child is mortal and human, and what a child wants or needs is not what immor­tals do. The lands are changing; the old ways are dying. The time is coming when the Fey must reckon with the Law of Man.
