Available to read in the anthology, X7.
Wow, that was a weird trip. This short story starts really strangely, and gets even stranger, as our protagonist, Chrys, who suffers from agoraphobia and can’t go out, gets worse and worse to the point of having what seems to be a total psychotic melt down.
And then everything comes crashing down, and boom! What an ending.
Ever more wonderful writing and story telling from Gaie, a master of the writing craft. If you haven’t yet read any of Gaie’s writing then i really suggest you get started, it’s real good fantasy for grown ups who love real good fantasy.
