“The Miscible Imp”
When the Villain Comes Home, edited by Gabrielle Harbowy and Ed Greenwood, Dragon Moon Press.
(fantasy short story)
“To live simpleminded was a doom worse than death to Treg, and Myrina was living proof.”
My favorite stories in the volume came from authors both familiar and new to me. Tony Pi’s “Miscible Imp” gives us a creature whose physical matrix is embedded in a potion, returning to the site of his creation to engage in a perilous heist. Pi’s typical penchant for dry humor resonates well here. – Paul Weimer, SF Signal
