My story, “When Resin Burns to Tar” is about a woman who is trying to find new place in the world after her mother dies. There’s magic and a ghost of sorts, love and friendship, AND I finally got to write about the tar-making process! I’ve been fascinated by this for years, and have tried to work it into a story and, well, here it is!
More about the anthology:
What is a life well-lived? What decisions will you make to have a meaningful life? What kind of stories will you leave behind?
Travel with twenty-three speculative fiction authors through the seasons of life to capture the memories, identities, and moments of stepping through the portal of change, as they cope with their own journeys of growing older.
From the moment of birth, through each threshold of our lives, to the moment we take our last breath, we age.
Some of us leap into a hopeful future, some cling to the knowns of our former selves, some wander obliviously through the minefields and poppies of change. Something is lost, something is gained in each season. Things forgotten, things remembered.
A child redefines identity and belonging in post-Soviet Hungary. A girl blossoming to adult awareness exchanges life for death in rural Canada. A college student chooses between the magic of ancient spirits and the magic of daily happiness in modern Japan. In futuristic India, a mother finds joy in the balance between family and career. Under the Andalusian sun, a mathematician consults his older self in affairs of love. In alternate Tanzania, a husband and wife discover wisdom in memory loss. A robot eases an old man’s grief, and a grandmother opens her heart when she listens to her child. And many more hopeful stories.
