Today we present Lizzy Viscera and the Quest for the Perfect Sandwich by Spencer Koelle. Spencer tells us, “This is the first story I wrote at Susquehanna University. I’d transferred into the college as a creative writing major, and when I found out I hadn’t been registered for any creative writing classes, I pledged to make up for that deficit by writing at least two new short stories that term.”
The author I most admire is Garth Nix, and after reading ‘Sabriel’ I thought about the lack of positive role models for necromancers in contemporary fiction. I also wanted to overturn that Doom and Gloom image that so often goes with practitioners of the craft, along with the image that female necromancers have to be model-thin gothic beauties with skull bras.”
