Free Fiction Monday: The Women of Whale Rock
Whale Rock’s sheriff, Dan Retsler, considers himself a practical man. But he has no explanation for the horrible deaths that take place on his beach. Nor does he know why so many locals fear the sea.
The answer lies in legends of mermaids—not the pretty kind, but the kind that lure sailors to their deaths. Retsler doesn’t believe in them, but nothing quite explains the women he sees, near the beach when he investigates a friend’s sudden and tragic death.
“The Women of Whale Rock,” by World Fantasy Award-winning author Kristine Kathryn Rusch, is free on this website for one week only. The story is also available in ebook here and as part of the new release Fantasy Life and Other Stories (Author Preferred Edition) here.
