“The Excruciating Beauty of Ephemera” in Constelación magazine

I’m really excited that my story, “The Excruciating Beauty of Ephemera” is out in the first issue of Constelacion magazine. In English and Spanish! It’s about a sentient volcano trying to do better.

“The slopes of the sentient volcano were covered with dying purple frogs. Vultures and other scavengers perched on the trees and picked at the little corpses. The volcano shuddered in agonies of guilt. Were the gases it emitted responsible? “

The illustration for the story is perfect!

I was delighted to find this story reviewed in Quick Sips reviews from Charles Payseur.

“The Excruciating Beauty of Ephemera” by Keyan Bowes (short story) – A strange and almost mythological story of a volcano distressed about the destruction it authors, seeking a way to live and let live, and finding an answer from a mysterious source. Grim but also kinda cute.
