Enmity Online

No, this is not about online fights.

As many of you know, I have a story in the latest issue of the Hugo award-winning zine Electric Velocipede. The editor asked if he could put my story online in its entirety to tempt people into buying the whole issue. I said yes immediately because I heart having my stories both online and in print.

Today it went live, so you can check out Enmity on the EV website. I hope you enjoy. This was my first Mythpunk story (before I even knew what Mythpunk was!). I was inspired by the stuff I learned in my creation myths class. Like Black Feather, I drew from many different versions of myths and many different myth traditions. It’s pretty cool the connections you can find by just looking for common elements and symbolism.

  1. Beautiful story – I loved the way you wove the myths together – very rare and strange.

    Thank you for sharing.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this! I usually really dislike that particular style, so I was surprised by how much I liked “Enmity.” There was enough left out that I had to puzzle and think about it, but not so much that I was left frustrated. There were two bits I particularly liked: when Orpheus looks back and is shocked by Eurydice’s corpse (heh) and “Wife of, mother of, daughter of . . . but never creator of.”

    And darn it, the editor’s scheme worked: now I want to read the full zine!
