I'm thrilled to announce that my historical-fantasy novella "Magic in the Mud Show" (set in the Barnum & Bailey Circus of 1892) is in the Winter 2020 issue of The Colored Lens. The story will eventually serve as a prequel for my forthcoming novel Magic in the White City. But for now, "Magic in the Mud Show" stands alone. You can pick it up (along with some other great stories) on Amazon.

Millions of visitors. Thousands of exhibits. One fiendish killer.
Neva’s goals at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago are simple. Enjoy the spectacle—perhaps the greatest the United States has ever put on. (The world’s fair to end all world’s fairs!) Perform in the exposition’s Algerian Theatre to the best of her abilities. And don’t be found out as a witch.
Easy enough … until the morning she looks up in the Theatre and sees strangely marked insects swarming a severed hand in the rafters.
