Read “The Words on My Skin” by Caroline M. Yoachim

Just like last week’s story, this week’s story is about heredity—what we’re given by our families, what we try to leave behind. And, just like last week’s story, it’s very short. This story does what all good fantasy should do: it leaves you thinking about the implications of the magic and it uses that magic to tell an emotionally true story.

“The Words on My Skin” first appeared in Uncanny Magazine in July 2016.
