Hello all! This happened a few weeks ago, but somehow I forgot to mention it here! Super excited to see this one up in the newest edition of Twist in Time magazine.
The impetus behind this story was a contest that assigned very specific prompts: a story written in Japan during the 1890’s. A lot of research later, I hope the story captures a window of the time period with just a smidgeon of fantasy.
