My Deal Me In deck gave me spades this week, which sent me to Daily Science Fiction, where I found this:
A space station is haunted by a crewmember who died on the job. She was the medic, and she knows what killed her. Nobody else knows or can find out. Her haunting consists of trying to let them know the danger they’re all in while they, hard-headed scientists, try to ignore her manifestations.
Jeanna Mason Stay does most of her writing in fantasy and fairy tales, making up new ways to look at old stories. Occasionally, though, she hears a siren call from some other genre, including the occasional song from outer space. Jeanna’s most recent stories include “Breadcrumbs,” about a post-traumatic Gretel searching for healing (published in Unspun: A Collection of Tattered Tales), and “The Nanny Job,” a contemporary Snow White romcom (published in Timeless Tales magazine).
Jeanna loves fireflies, serial commas, and her husband and children. Not necessarily in that order. She dreams of one day owning a herd of Chia sheep. You can find her at calloohcallaycallay.blogspot.com and on Facebook @JeannaMasonStay.
I will definitely be looking for more by this author!
