Shadows of the Rose
Shadows of the Rose is a varied collection of short stories, but all have one thing in common, an ending with a twist. They take place in various times, various places, from medieval witch trials, to the far reaches of space and future. Here is just a taste: In "The Witch Hunter", a young girl is accused of sorcery and the witch hunter sent to condemn her is not as he seems... "Baby Blues" is set in a future where family planning is controlled by the state and it is illegal to make love... "Free Falling" is set in space, where some friendly aliens have found the cure for most of human diseases, except for one--the one you have... "Shadows of the Rose" tells the story of a lover's tryst in a ruined abbey, but there is something not quite right... In "The Glass Guitar," Meg thinks a haunted guitar might be just the present for her boyfriend's birthday...
