she's gonna kill me and i don't mean softly.

And meanwhile, over at Tor.com, it is my extreme pleasure to offer you a wintry story about a girl and a harpy, complete with Peter S. Beagle quote for the title, and a John Jude Palencar illustration.



"The Horrid Glory of its Wings" by Elizabeth Bear. (that's me)

“Speaking of livers,” the unicorn said, “Real magic can never be made by offering up someone else’s liver. You must tear out your own, and not expect to get it back. The true witches know that.”

—Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn*



(Read the story behind the fake cut)


Happy holidays.

I want to use this painting for everything I ever write again.

ETA: please comment over there if you want anybody involved in the story other than me to see the comment. *g*




*That's my favorite book, if you didn't know.
