I learned recently that Nainaine of the Bayou was the third-most read story at Black Treacle in 2013! This is according to their Terrifying Treacle Top Five.
Of course I’m thrilled, and proud to be among such great company. If you haven’t read the story yet, now’s a good time.
Young Nell wanders the swamps and flooded ruins of what used to be New Orleans, accompanied only by her zombie grandmother. With her village all dead, Nell’s only hope is to find the witch Nainaine Laveau, who might have the magic to return grandmother from undeath.
Nainaine of the Bayou is a story of Murka, and shares a world with Toll Road.
