“The Flying Rock” Coming in May in Bad-Ass Faeries: It’s Elemental

The Books Are Free But Magic Has Its Price

“Gorge released note after blistering note, and the audience soaked up his music like a rain of razor blades. They danced, whirled, and smashed together; they bled magic that flowed across smoky air, shimmering red and yellow with flashing stage lights, to feed the hungry core inside him. He hadn’t felt magic this pure and […]
