“Comes the Horseman” by Rachael Acks
“Comes the Huntsman” by Rachael Acks
Rachael Acks is, in addition to a writer, a geologist and like so many scientific short story writers chronicled in this blog, she has woven math and numbers into this story as deftly as she has woven myth and poetry. It begins with the taste of an apple and we all know what trouble the wrong bite of fruit can bring. This story appeared in Strange Horizons earlier this month. You can read it here.
See you tomorrow!
