Free Fiction Monday: Un-Familiar

Winston’s familiar Ruby, a small black cat, avoids dogs whenever possible. So when Winston finds her in cahoots with a toy poodle-Chihuahua mix, he wants to know why.

Ruby, usually so vocal, says nothing. Her silence, that dog, and a storm in the Oregon Coast community of Seavy Village all combine into one of the most memorable days of Winston’s life.

“Un-Familiar,” by World Fantasy Award-winning author Kristine Kathryn Rusch, is free on this website for one week only.
