Fantasy wine death

An undead sommelier’s job never ends, finding and serving the vintages that help the dead pass on to the other side. But one mystery eludes him: the identity of the proprietor of the hotel of the dead. Can he help her find peace after centuries in purgatory?

Author Grayson Bray Morris lives in the Netherlands, and her work has appeared in Abyss & Apex, Galaxy’s Edge, Daily Science Fiction, and more.


A tilted wine glass having red nectar poured into. Have you ever thought: "When is the best moment in anything ? ". Is it not that the best moment of your vacation is when you lock the front door of your house and turn your back to it ? Every subsequent moment just brings you closer to the end of the vacation. Drinking wine is no different. Pouring wine in the glass is the peek moment of the ceremony. After that, every drop you drink degrades your glass to an emptier one. That is of course until you fill it up again. But then is it not that you just get a new peek moment of a new ceremony ?.
