“A Child of Darkness” by Susan Casper


Story 242/366

Susan Casper is married to science fiction writer/editor Gardner Dozois and has said in print that she began writing in order to “fit in” with him and also with her writer friends. I couldn’t find a picture of her without Gardner and they look like they’re having a good time in the picture to the left (they were on their way to the Hugos), so today’s author picture is a two for one. “A Child of Darkness” is an odd story about a delusional outsider of a girl who is fascinated by blood nd thinks she’s a vampire. It appeared in Ellen Datlow’s anthology of vampire tales Blood is Not Enough.

See you tomorrow!
