My story “The Bear Wife” is available to read online today, at Metaphorosis Magazine. It’s a contemporary take on the animal-wife folk tale — a woman who was once a bear struggles with reconciling her old life with her new, and with the pleasures and pains of new motherhood. Digital copies of the February issue are also available here. The theme for the issue is “family” and there are some wonderful stories in there.
Also, the cover art for this issue is amazing — it’s wonderful to see my story illustrated like that (art by Saleha Chowdhury).
Hope you enjoy!
