‘…a miller called Hana was carrying two sacks of grain on her back when the deva fell from the sky. The deva fell so hard that the ground rippled, throwing Hana off her feet like a cat flung from a duvet. Both sacks of grain exploded. Hana staggered upright, staring at the crater from which the woman’s legs stood upright like a pair of shovels plunged into the sod.’
A chapbook of short, evocative vignettes, this sixteen-page booklet includes seven fiction pieces exploring the folkloric and the fantastical in the form of excerpts, records, journal entries and myths. Illustrated with a combination of sketches by the author and public domain art.
