Fantasy Horror Historical historical fantasy victorian london dark fiction

Modern children fear the monster in the closet and the creature under the bed. Victorian climbing boys have no closets and no beds. What do they fear?

"The Soul Jar" appeared in a steampunk anthology called THE SHADOW CONSPIRACY, and I'll post it next week. Click LIKE or SUBSCRIBE. I can't do this without my fantastic readers!

Fantasy Historical steampunk collaboration voice

I love collaborative writing--to me, it combines everything I love best about writing (creation, imagination, that indefinable spark) with everything I love best about editing (figuring out another creative person’s mind and working out how best to express it). Plus, it’s just fun to play together. This story was written for Gears and Levers Volume 1, from Sky Warrior, April 2012, and reprinted in my collection Eastlick and Other Stories, 2013.
