This week’s new ebook is “Requiem Duet, Concerto for Flute and Voodoo.” Originally published in Daily Science Fiction, Sept. 2011.
Zoë hears voices, three of them. She always has, even before her father died and she had to move to New Orleans. They tell her things, help her when she’s in trouble, and warn her when danger’s nearby. So she doesn’t understand when they advise her to trust Maurin, the strange voodoo man who asks for her still-beating heart in exchange for his help in repairing her most treasured keepsake, her father’s bone flute.
A story about friendship and grief, and how sometimes you have to lose your heart to find it.
