"An Honorable Aunt" at Silver Blade

Silver Blade Issue #18 is live, and includes my fantasy story "An Honorable Aunt".

This was one of those stories it was fun to write simply because I was getting inside the heads of people who view the world so differently from me, that it was a stretch of intellectual--and perhaps empathetic--muscle to show their thoughts and feelings. I think once you read the story it'll be obvious what I mean, but I will say, just about every character in the story did something to surprise me at some point. Caris especially. Although in hindsight, it couldn't have turned out any other way.
