Words and Wings

I've signed a contract with Forbidden Fiction for a new m/m science fiction novelette, called Icarus:

A man on the run dreams of wings, like the surgical modifications given to the rich and famous of Central City. The hacker who harbors him will do anything to keep him, and undertakes risky missions to pay for the dangerous operation in a back alley chop shop. The wings bring agony as much as freedom, but they allow the two lovers to share a brief moment of bliss in the upper reaches of the atmosphere before tragedy strikes.

The mythological Icarus flies too close to the sun and melts his wings of wax, and my Icarus does much the same -- with dreams, with wings, with boldness, and with love.

The story will be part of Forbidden Fiction's special collection, Taking Flight. I'll post more information when it becomes available.

In the meantime, check out the other work in the Forbidden Fiction catalog.


  1. Congrats, Annabeth. I almost submitted to that one, too, but I got side-tracked. I can't wait to read it. Angie

  2. Thanks! If you're still interested, Forbidden Fiction usually leaves their calls open a bit after the deadline. You could take a look on the website and see if it's still open.

    But it looks like you're doing plenty! I've been seeing your name in quite a few of tables of contents lately. :)
