Title: Naked City | Fairy Gifts Discussion
Post by: Has on October 15, 2010, 03:32:16 pm
I just came across this at Scifi Guy's blog- Author Ellen Datlow has posted the cover of an anthology she's participating and it's going to feature a short story by Patty called Fairy Gifts. There was no further details about the story and whether its linked with the Mercyverse but I love the cover and most of the authors participating in the book.

Sorry, I'm late to the party!  "Fairy Gifts" is not related to any of Patty's other stories, it's a complete stand-alone.  It's a story of a Chinese vampire in Butte, Montana.   Patty likes the character, and says she may, someday, do another story or two with him, but she's getting a mighty long list of "maybe someday" stories.  :P

I managed to pick this up today. It wasn't on the shelves but they had it downstairs in the warehouse.  :-whistle

This is definitely a kind of vampire we've never seen before, or I think, we'll ever see again. He's unique. I liked him, I hope he's someone that we'll read about in another story.

I'm not sure about this vampire.  Very interesting though, many possibilities.

This vamp reminds me of Adam as they both consider themselves monsters.
