"Green"

Just reviewed page proofs of my short story "Green". It originally ran in Aeon 5, late last year, and is now being reprinted in the next edition of Best of the Rest. I'd forgotten how much I like that story.

Trivia: "The Daughters of Desire", which just sold, is set in the same continuity as "Green", though it does not share any characters or major plot elements.

Reading the page proofs made me want to revisit Green Crossing, a book I outlined which follows the protag after the events of the short story. Maybe I'll write that the next time I have a novel-sized hole in my schedule. Sort of Kushiel-esque, South Asian influenced courtly fantasy.
