The Boy Who Made Stars

Cool to see another sometime member of the GSFWC, Eliza Chan, getting a publication in Fantasy Magazine, with a great wee story, "The Boy Made Stars":

Motoki was fifteen when he accidentally created stars. Before this time, the night’s sky had always been ebony black, and the white glow of the moon had looked like a cheap spotlight left there by a film studio in liquidation. People rarely looked up because it reminded them of that void under the bed when you tuck your feet under you as a child for fear of the faceless blue monster. Everyone carried lanterns because shining a powerful torch every day was both a waste of electricity and like dropping a feather in a hedgehog farm. Lanterns at least were warm in a glow that mirrored babies’ cheeks and hot tea by the fireplace on snowy days.

Go read it. You know you want to.

And a huge congrats to Eliza. :D
