Sat, 30 May 2009 the garden of death

This month Fantasy Magazine ran a competition for writers to come up with a story in ten lines based on a piece of artwork.

I found the challenge interesting, and picked “The Garden of Death” (1896) by Finnish artist Hugo Simberg (1873 – 1917).

Fantasy Magazine decided to shortlist ten stories. A readers’ poll will decide the three winners, which will be podcast. My piece, also called “The Garden of Death”, is among the top ten.

All the stories are strong, but if you think mine is among the best, I’d appreciate it if you would vote for me. The poll will remain open until June 12th.
