Post-apocalyptic dark fantasy produced by the amazing team at Mortis Maledictum.
The fires are coming
I wrote On Burning Ground during the pandemic. It was an intense, post-apocalyptic short story that I tried to have capture the general sense of dread and the way life felt like it was slipping away between our fingers. I wrote the story, and like many things during that time, I shoved it in a folder and promptly forgot about it.
Welcome to 2023.
So, here I was working on Dead Things when the team at Mortis reached out asking if I had something new they could run with. I've written for them a few times, namely Poison Pills and the forthcoming God's Country, so I knew what to expect. I knew whatever I sent them, they'd treat it with the utmost of respect and put nothing but top notch talent on it.
That was when I stumbled across On Burning Ground. It's a story about love, and life, and hanging on when everything else says not to.
It's a story about a dad, a daughter, and maybe a dog.
It's about remembering how to be human when the world is very much not.
