take home to Mother...
ORCHIDS FROM AUM
Dark fantasy stories from the Cursed City, Aum
Available from Silver
Aum came to me one day while I was stuck in traffic. Staring
at the car ahead of me, I noticed the letter on the licence
plate spelled a word: AUM. What was Aum? A who or a where?
When? Why? How?
I sent a King into Aum and found out. I wrote more stories,
exploring the politics, magic, art and politics of the place,
until I found a character who brought the place into focus
for me: Jeloc. You'll find him in the last two stories of
this collection. I have plans for him, and for Aum.
