Shards of Mirrors is a collection of 16 flash fiction pieces by Carin Marais. The stories are thematically linked, with the writer exploring loss, grief, forgetting, and remembering throughout the collection. Though not light-hearted, many of the stories are bittersweet and even hopeful.
The genres range from steampunk (“Calling the Rain”), and horror (“The Call from Below”, “Red”), to sci-fi (“Shared Memories in High Definition”, “Petrichor”) and fantasy (“A Cup of Tea”, “A Fair Trade”).
The day is here! The final cover for Forgotten is ready! Behold –
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.
Forgotten will be available from next week!
