Feather by Feather and Other Stories is a varied collection of over 40 stories and poems. In these stories, demons struggle with their nature (and bake biscuits); a young girl faces a witch in search of the bobble hat that will save her Great-Aunt; a steam engine attempts the impossible; a student finds a book that may spell the death of her; catastrophe strikes Nightshadow and his people, testing their faith in the Stars; a mermaid learns that life above the sea offers far more than princes; ghosts howl their stories at passersby; an asexual teenager struggles with relationships and trust; and Phee… Well. Phee is Phee.

Lynn E. O’Connacht’s first collection is a kaleidoscope of tales, featuring folktale and fairytale retellings, superhero fiction, science fiction, realistic fiction and more. Sensitive, imaginative, heart-wrenching, gentle, witty, candid, and engrossing Feather by Feather and Other Stories is a powerful and enchanting selection. It also includes an explanation on how to write your own triple sestina, a self-interview and brief commentary on every piece published in the collection.

Sea Foam and Silence

Title: Sea Foam and Silence
Genre: ,

She warned of the pain. She did.
But no warning can prepare you.
Nothing can.

How could any of us have known
what it is like on the dry sand?
We just watched.

It’s hard, not being able to ask
questions, though I have learned some speech
with my hands. ˆ_ˆ

I miss my sisters. I love my prince.

I have made friends here. I have laughed with them,
learned with them, played with them.
I love them.

She said I would die if he loves someone else.
Will I die? At the beginning I wanted to. It hurts
so much. Life isn’t easy, will never be easy, but…
I don’t want to become sea foam.

Seventeen-year-old Rue doesn’t need any friends other than Ghost, her not-so-imaginary best friend. They’ve been inseparable for as long as Rue can remember and Rue shares everything with Ghost.

The day before Rue returns home from school for the long holiday, Ghost disappears. Ever-fretful Rue tries to tell herself it’s fine, but she knows something is horribly, terribly wrong. She’ll have to overcome her anxiety find her courage and push her boundaries further than she ever thought possible in order to save her best friend, and perhaps make some new ones as Rue finds herself drawn into the fringes of a secret battle for human survival.

Soft science fiction meets fantasy in this exciting novella-length adventure of daring and friendship.
