Brenda Carre writes long and short fiction with a dark, mythic twist — stories often set in locations near her home on Vancouver Island or in the Chronicles of Ardebrin, the epic fantasy series she is currently crafting. Brenda’s short fiction has appeared in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, as well as anthologies from Fiction River and Ragnarok Press. We are delighted to publish ‘Gret’, the first chapter of her forthcoming novel of the same name, a preview of which also appeared in the acclaimed Blackguards Blacklist: Anthology (Ragnarok,
2015 ). ‘The Clunkety’, also featuring Gret, will appear this fall in the Superpowers Anthology (Fiction River). More about Gret-the-witch, Ardebrin, and Brenda’s art can be found at brendacarre.com.
