YAY! I have a new short story out that’s part of the Uncollected Anthology series!
Pearl’s greatest magical gift? Knowing exactly what someone needs before they do. Opening up a magic shop seemed like the perfect way to help her use her gift.
The problem? The beautiful smartly-dressed woman who just walked in.
This woman wants something. Something only Pearl can provide.
Pearl’s fear? Figuring out exactly what this woman needs. And what the cost may be…
anthology: a collection of selected literary pieces
uncollected: not collected or gathered together
oxymoron: a combination of words that have opposite or very different meanings
The Uncollected Anthology series is indeed an oxymoron. Sprung from the minds of seven fabulous authors who love fantasy, short stories, and each other’s writing, the series’ main goal is to bring you quality urban fantasy fiction.
Every three months, the authors pick a theme and write a short story for that theme. But instead of bundling the stories together, they each sell their own stories. No muss, no fuss—you can buy one story, or you can buy them all. (We’ll be honest: we hope you buy them all!)
Uncollected Anthology: When you can’t get enough of the stories you love.

A Future Song
First, our FABULOUS guest writer, Stephanie Writt!
Hadley, a 27-year-old golf ball diver (by day) and electronic DJ (by night), travels over a hundred miles on two hours of sleep to save her younger (by 37 seconds) brother’s rear on a school field trip to the Oregon Coast Aquarium. He’s the teacher, not a student. Punk hadn’t reached out to her in over a year, but figured it was the new dad thing that had distracted him. Their playful reunion turns murky when a run-through a humpback whale exhibit flips Hadley’s world upside down. Visions. She sees visions in the whale’s music. Under water visions of past disasters. Or are they the future? Thousands of lives depend on Hadley. To save them, will she have to sacrifice the love of her brother?
Fight or Flight
Leslie Claire Walker
Time travel. Love. Magic.
Little Charlie Nobody fights to survive on dangerous streets. No one cares whether he lives or dies—and he comes close to dying more than once. Each time he hovers between life and death, he not only sees the future, he enters it. He doesn’t understand how it happens, only that it feels real. And that it must be some kind of magic that makes it possible.
He falls in love with the wonders he sees, the people he meets, and even the trouble he finds. No one captures his heart more than Sunday Sloan, who wields the kind of magic that others would kill to possess.
He wants nothing more than to become part of her world. Will magic allow him to leave his own time and remain in hers?
If you enjoy urban fantasy filled with wonder and darkness, you’ll love Fight or Flight.
Fight or Flight is a stand-alone story set in the SOUL FORGE series and is a prequel to the novel NIGHT AWAKENS. For more SOUL FORGE magic, visit leslieclairewalker.com.
