Cindy, A Christmas Lagniappe (Also a Preview of The Tears of Isis?)

THE TEARS OF ISIS is not a book of fairy tales, but fairy tales may have been the inspiration for some stories in it.  One of these is “Cindy,” about you-know-who, and originally written for Dean Wesley Smith for an anthology to be called SPLATTERFAIRIES.  The anthology never was published, but “Cindy” went on to FANTASTIC in Spring 2001, and possibly one or two places more (promiscuous, our Cindy is) before ending up as one of the offerings in THE TEARS OF ISIS.

So enjoy it now, courtesy of WILY WRITERS (cf. August 4, February 19 2012) as a dark-complexioned holiday e-story for reading or in audio form by pressing here.  If you enjoy it, perhaps you’d like also to check out THE TEARS OF ISIS, available on Amazon, B&N, and Amazon UK, or directly orderable from Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing by clicking its picture in the center column.
