Happy New Year! The 2018 winter edition of the Silver City Quarterly Review is now available. I’m thrilled to have one of my short scifi stories included!
The review spotlights local authors from Silver City and southwestern New Mexico, presenting their short fiction and non-fiction pieces, and poetry. There’s something for everyone and an archive too. Help encourage local authors and read for free – you can’t beat that.
City Hall, Silver City, NM, USA
Silver City is my home, a lovely little mountain town in rural southwest New Mexico, USA. Founded by a gold and silver rush in the late 1800s, we still have active copper mines, and a wonderful greenspace around old iron mines that you can enter from behind the courthouse (right in town!) for a lovely stroll. Silver is a gateway to the Gila National Forest and Continental Divide Trail, and boasts a growing artist community and the best coffee shops I’ve ever lounged around. Plan a visit sometime.
Eirik joins a raiding party led by invincible Berserkers, terrorizing coastal villagers with sword and axe. What’s the secret to their strange magic?
