Preflight by P.G. Streeter
"By the afternoon's fading light, the lake looks like the frozen surface of another world—but she has visited these before."

“I’m a girl, not a goblin!” she snapped, surprised at how strange and creaky her voice sounded.

Stranger Than a Swan by Mary E. Lowd
"The two beings stared at each other, bright brown eyes and glowing red eyes, sizing each other up."

Ella's Roses by Sarah EA Hart
"Blood. One single, tiny drop of blood. One perfect little bubble of welled-up red blood, shivering on his hand, ready to spill with the slightest tilt of his palm."

My Dearest Astrid Doppia by James Edward O'Brien
"Sometimes I wonder if I made the wrong decision coming here. Other times I just wish that you were up here with me."

Ernest in All Seasons by Michael Robert
"Ernest became a recurring subject in my sketchbook, always depicted as a king doing kingly things."

Le Saga Electrik by Logan Thrasher Collins
