One of my readers’ favorite stories, “Komenda’s Children,” has just been reprinted in Short Story America, volume III. Get your copy here, in time for the holidays. All the stories in this volume are high-quality, gutsy, and mean something. I can’t think of a better gift to give.
“Komenda’s Children,” a story about a Southern woman who travels to a slave trading fortress in West Africa while investigating her unsettling family legacy, was read at the second annual Short Story America Festival and Conference in South Carolina. It has previously been published in the Soundtrack Not Included anthology, which you can purchase here.
