So what's it about? Well, here's the lead in SQ Mag included when they published the story:
When you offend the gods and snub tradition, things can go badly wrong, and they can occur in the most unlikely places and circumstances.
Alright, so that doesn't tell you a lot. It's about a chicken of all things. A pretty badass chicken really - one I borrowed from Japanese mythology because it was just too good to pass up. Anyone who knows me knows I love animals, and anyone who's read my novels and short stories knows most of them incorporate animals in one form or another into the story. Some are friend, some are foe, some are big, scary monsters, others brave companions doing their best to keep our hero out of trouble. And the chicken in Fairest Fowl? Which category does that fall in: friend, foe, nice guy or monster? Well, check out the story on SQ Mag's site and you'll find out. Enjoy, and if you like the story, please leave a comment on my blog.
