Whatever it was, it came to me in the night, left its talisman...and then disappeared.

Tied to my reading lamp was a single balloon.

Teaser Tuesday: Riverrun (The Riverrun Trilogy, book 1) (again)

Teaser Tuesday post for 1 March 2016
from Riverrun (The Riverrun Trilogy, book 1) by S.P. Somtow

My first day at work: there's a whole fleet of Thorn's shops, triremes, longboats, galleons, all of them with gargoyle prows and black sails and ghoulish crews, but I'm riding in the flagship of them all, sitting at the right hand of Mr. Death himself, with a three-headed dog yapping at my heels and Cornelius Huang making his conch sing somber music.

I'm standing right by the prow with the marble in my hand and I guess I'm kind of piloting, even though this path is so well worn that the fleet meets no resistance from the reality stream.

from Lisey’s Story by Stephen King

Lisey walked to the stairs, dripping dark drops on some of the places where she'd bled.  The wrap of the african slipped down to her hips and became skirtlike, exotic, even a little sexy.
