This is technically not my first publication of ’22 but my last publication of ’21: this story came out for subscribers in the December ’21 issue of The Deadlands.
But! It is now available for free to you, the general public! Here you are, Roots of Lamentation. In which there are more rivers in the Greek hell than we usually get to talk about….
Please note that The Deadlands is a magazine dedicated to fiction about death and the afterlife, so this is a story dealing with death and grieving; judge when you want to read it accordingly.
