Nine years ago a plane crashed outside the village. Since then sigils have kept the darkness away.
Joshua dreams of flying and escaping the burning fuselage unhurt. Now fourteen, he goes to explore the plane’s wreckage but has no idea that he will release powers beyond his comprehension. The spirits of the wreck are the least of his problems.
The Jozi Flash 2017 flash fiction anthology is now available – and it’s free!
It’s not quite the Gummi Bears, but it certainly bounces around a lot.
Jozi Flash 2017 combines the talents of ten brilliant authors with one gifted artist, to bring you a collection of 80 flash fiction stories across eight different genres.
From a children’s story about the folly of summoning dragons, to the horrors held in deliciously treacherous ice cream, the authors take you on journeys that weave fantasy and folklore together alongside practical detectives and everyday tragedy.
With stunning artwork prompts by Nico Venter, these South African authors have created an anthology that will leave you breathless.
My flash fiction collection Dim Mirrors is available on Noisetrade Books:
Dim Mirrors is a collection of 39 flash fiction stories that open windows into secondary worlds of fantasy and nightmare. Interwoven with images from mythology and folklore are the themes of love, loss, and memory. The comical “Not According to Plan” leads to more serious and introspective works like “Blue Ribbons” and “The Destroyer of Worlds”, while mythology and folkloric elements come together in stories like “The Souls of Trees” and “Ariadne’s Freedom”. A number of stories in this collection, including “Life on Canvas”, “Charms of Ash”, and “Shadows”, are set in her own secondary world of Airtha-Eyrassa.
