Illustration for ‘Fox Fires’

‘The Forgotten and the Fantastical 2’ stories – ‘Fox Fires’. Jane Wright’s nighttime tale is beautifully eerie and one of my personal favourites from this collection of short stories. A tale of a young girl’s overwhelming grief, the ambiance of a cold winter in the far North creates a ‘silence’ that emphasises the emotions so much more strongly, from the sadness of loss to the glimmer of light that is hope.

‘Fox Fires’ sits alongside 16 other short stories in ‘The Forgotten and the Fantastical 2’, published by Mother’s Milk Books. Copies are available from their website.
