Short story now live at Abyss & Apex

Hatyasin-picYay! My short story Hatyasin is now live at Abyss & Apex, a great speculative fiction magazine. You can read my story here.  I enjoy perusing the fiction they publish every quarter and am so pleased to find Hatyasin among them. All the stories are free to read, so if you have the time, I highly recommend you pop over and check them out.

This one will always be a special publication for me. It was my first short story acceptance, back in December 2013, and made all the difference between hugging my laptop and throwing it out of the window in frustration. So thank you, Abyss & Apex, and wish you a long life!

    Hi Rati,
    I just finished reading your story…I really really like the style ….short well-etched punches of very vivid images…..tremendous economy of words and yet very powerful… could just see the entire ‘movie’ playing out..slowly revealing the details and filling out the vision….the tale itself creates an eerie feeling … was happily lost in your web … but yanked out quite harshly by the murder of the parents…disturbing stuff that. You are very gifted with your language. My best wishes for your continued success. Keep writing!

    Lovely and suspenseful! What Rahul said above. Congrats, and I’m looking forward to the other stories you have coming out this year! (Vanessa)


  3. Nice one. Always a long walk for us and as in your story, sometimes we find comfort from others along the way. May it always be that way for you.
