One of the year's best lesbian fiction short stories, now available free!

The witch Meriel has spent her entire life in the lighthouse on tiny Bound Island. Upon the distant shore prowls an ancient sea god kept captive by a generations-old spell, a spell that Meriel alone must protect.

Meriel's life has been lonely and unchanging--until the arrival of Nor. Nor's shape is that of a woman, but her heart belongs to the sea. Even though Nor is also held captive by Meriel's spell, she shows kindness to the isolated witch. Nor sparks a passion within Meriel, defying every law that binds them both.

This award-winning short story ("The Witch Sea" won first place in the "Kissed by Venus" Fresh Voices short story competition, and will be included in the 2013 volume of Heiresses of Russ: The Year's Best Lesbian Speculative Fiction) is a dark fantasy tale of love, loss and the price of freedom, and a lesbian romance like you've not seen before.
