Beyond the Fence: A Short Collection of Stories
The worlds in Marilyn Horn's stories are sometimes dark, sometimes surreal, and sometimes both and yet not so unfamiliar. No matter how fantastic the world, loneliness is the enemy, connection the goal. Within these pages, a brother and sister look to the cosmos for answers as death makes its steady approach. A monster longs to destroy the evil he sees beyond his attic window. An outcast dolphin finds her place spinning tales of hope and inspiration. A woman forced back home plunges into old magic to save a dog's life. A lone survivor creates a new world with the only thing the dead have left behind. A mother awaits her son's return but finds her one ally has lost all hope. A soul languishing in heaven prays his soul mate won't find another reason to stay on Earth. And, in the title story, a seed seller vows to save at least one lonely soul from an eternity beyond the fence.
