A silly short story of one gangster and the woman he loves. I am not a frequent crime writer but I love getting into it when I have an idea that works, and this short came out of the ideas of relationships and permissible bad behaviour. It's very much a crime story but there's no option for that so we have mystery and romance because those are technically present.

In which our heroes handle a trapped familiar, an evil magician, and a gorgon. All at once. "Smoke and Mirrors" first appeared in Esther Friesner's TURN THE OTHER CHICK anthology, the fifth of the CHICKS IN CHAINMAIL series. I wrote a sequel to it for the last Chicks anthology. I'll post it next week!

Editor Jennifer Brozek wrote me one afternoon: “Help! I’ve got an anthology that’s short a story, can you write one in a few days?”“Of course!” I said, delighted to pinch-hit, even though I was leaving for Australia the following week. She wanted a fairy tale turned on its head, told from the monster’s point of view. Human Tales came out in August of 2011.
