Look at that gorgeous cover! More free fiction for your delectation and delight! Well, maybe not so much delectation this time; this is one of the more personal stories I’ve written and I’d say definitely the most personal I’ve had published. It was one of the easiest stories I’ve ever written because of that, which also makes it one of the scariest to have published. Anyway: “Elena’s Angel”, up for free at Apex now. I hope you enjoy it and the rest of the wonderful issue!
