Naked City | Fairy Gifts Discussion
« 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
