What the Wind Blew in From Golconda by Emmett Schlenz. Narrated by J.S. Arquin. Featuring an afterword by Emmett Schlenz. #fantasy #magicalrealism
Cora looked up from her notebook to watch the storm, and in the lingering of a lightning flash she saw something beyond the pomegranate trees, coming up over the bluff. A dark smudge she took to be a lost balloon, getting closer. As it neared, Cora noticed it was much too large to be a balloon. Much too long. And a balloon would have been shuddering under all that rain.
When she realized it was a person, floating above the orchard, surprise only weighed her down for a moment before she exploded out the backdoor.
Born and raised in Rhode Island, Emmett Schlenz studied English and History at Loyola Marymount University. Currently he is a proud member of the Burgerville Workers Union in Portland, Oregon, and attends the People's Colloquium writers' workshop. Everything he writes is a love letter to somebody.
