Featuring my story, "Starlight and the Dire Child."
Alone for the first time, dire wolf Starlight would move heaven and earth to end her Third Summer Rite early and rejoin the telepathy of the packmind. But as much as she fears the Emptiness, the pack won’t allow her to remain a pup forever. If she returns early, they’ll make her face the Emptiness again.
But when a human voice accidentally breaks into Starlight’s mind, the dire wolf must find a way to locate the child, the last surviving Wolf-Talker… with or without the pack.
Follow Starlight on an adventure where morality challenges the status quo, and where family comes through even when the pack does not.
“Premeditations by Michelle Ristuccia offers an alluring sampler of dark flash fiction, bite-sized and delicious like a tray of freshly-baked cookies. And, as with cookies, you can’t stop at reading just one.”
—Alex Shvartsman, Editor in Chief of UFO Publishing
