The Butcher's Wife: Sample Chapter - 8 years ago

The whole novella is available here: aperback/product-21334928.html Chapter 1 Yet Lord, instruct us so to die, That all these dyings may be life in death. - John Donne Sometimes the flayed things have spirits. In death, the knife feels like a whisper, whittling down to the whiteness of bone. She regained consciousness as the spurts from her jugular began to slow, and the snick and slice of the blade were dreadful ca…

  • A Witch's Natural History: Sample Chapter

    - January  1, 2014
    The whole book is available here:'s-natural-history.html Chapter 13 Beyond the Crooked Stile It is said that Mother Goose is derived from Frau Holt, or Herodias, the goddess of the witches of northern Europe, who flies at night astride a goose, naked and (even in my childhood imagination) voluptuous in spite of the cold. She flies at the head of the Furious Horde, the Wild Hunt, her raven hair streaming out behind her, her red slitted pupils glowing on…

Rhisiart - thank you for the greeting. The uploads are all the old things from my Flickr account. There are so many that it will take me some considerable time, but I need to do it now while I have the chance. I suspect that Flickr may just suddenly disappear one day! In any case, it is now nearly impossible to use, and I get no joy out of it - so a smaller community, but one that is actually able to comment and discuss, is fine by me! Looks like I might have to spend time rotating a lot of photos, though! Judith - I am pretty sure I will stay. I have been "lurking" here for a while, trying to decide whether to leave Flickr, and it is such a relief to be back in an environment that works!
