Beneath Ceaseless Skies
"Invitation of the Queen" appears in Beneath Ceaseless Skies Issue #52.
The brutal resistance of an occupied nation, a beautiful woman, a friend's jealousy, a book that should have been burned--these things will change Ander Leuhovesen's life forever.
I don't think any summary of mine could really do this story justice. Among other things, it was very interesting to write because its narrator, Leuhovesen's friend Hary, is...well, 'jerk' isn't nearly strong enough, 'racist bigot' doesn't cover all of it, an any word that does cover all of it would be a spoiler. And yet he can be surprisingly good-hearted to the right people. To say I enjoyed writing about him would sound awful, but I'm glad that I managed to pull it off, and more than a little proud.
