A windy day near Mount Cook with a baby glacier on the mountaintop behind us. This was in Jan 2009. Unlike the rest of the world, some of the glaciers were advancing rather than receding.
My story "Deeper than Flesh and Closer" in Belong received an awesome review over at Specusphere:
Deeper than Flesh and Closer” by Carol Ryles is a story about coming back to where you came from. Sometimes the changes go more than skin deep and sometimes they don’t appear to be changes at all… This is an evocative and haunting story about the changes that take place to a place and people that we think we know through history and story, but haven’t experienced.
They also said a lot of nice words about the anthology itself, here
Congratulations to my Clarion buddies for the publication of the following stories:
