“Singing of Mount Abora” by Theodora Goss

This story won the World Fantasy Award for short fiction in 2008. It’s on the longish side—nearly 7K–and every word is a thread in a tapestry of a tale that builds a myth and a world and a narrative. It feels like it could easily be a longer work.  Certainly it’s a story that sent me in search of Goss’ other work. (She gets major points for the uncomplicated sign up for her blog. There’s a button marked “subscribe.” You click on it and voila—an email thanking you for subscribing.  As someone who increasingly finds captchas hard to read, I appreciate the ease.) You can read the story on the Lightspeed site. Learn more about the author and her work on her site.

See you tomorrow!
