A whisper of butterflies’ wings promises a lonely old man his heart’s desire; mages draw upon music to work magic; and a fearful symmetry threatens an alien realm. Be it in our dreams or flights of fancy that take us into uncharted territory, our hopes and desires often birth twisted imaginings. This selection of tales, some devious or whimsical, others downright eerie and unsettling, offer glimpses into other, darker realities.
Allow Amy Lee Burgess, Anna Reith, Autumn Christian, Carrie Clevenger, DC Petterson, Don Webb, Liz Strange, Nerine Dorman, Rab Fulton, Sarah Lotz, SL Schmitz, Sonya Clark and Toby Bennett to remove you from what’s familiar – just for a short while – and bring you back changed.
I'm very proud to be a part of this anthology from Dark Continents Publishing and editor Nerine Dorman. My story Musicmage combines two things I love - magic and music - but in a bit different tone that what I normally write. One of the great things about short stories is the freedom to experiment a bit more than you otherwise might. I love the story, and as I read through the rest of the anthology I find myself even more thrilled to be keeping such fine company.
Here are some links for the anthology ->

I've even got a small pinboard for Musicmage. Here you can see what Liza Holcomb and Marcus Dean look like, and hear the music that helped me write the story.
Sonya Clark writes urban fantasy and paranormal romance with a heavy helping of magic and lots of music for inspiration. Learn more at www.sonyaclark.net.
