Science Fiction prison

What is the purpose of prison? Reformation or punishment? For many, we send our frightening offenders to incarceration so they can learn the errors of their way. In isolation from humanity, they will contemplate their offenses and decide not to offend again. But for the worst criminals, the rapists and murderers and evil, there's a darker, more powerful motivation to punish and torment. The urge to hurt is strong.

Inge and the King

Published Aug 12, 2019 · 4,838 words (18 minutes)

Historical Romance medieval happily ever after (maybe)

I'm not sure why I chose this ballad to retell for my collection, way back in the nineties - no magic, no shapeshifting, no humorous twist. Just a straight love story, not my kind of thing, really. At least she picks her own man?! Reading it over, I find the king amusing, at any rate. However, the women of my novels, even my children's books, would give Inge very different advice on how to get her lands back. Edged weapons would no doubt be involved.
