Recently, I sold a story to Camden Park Press for their Street Magic anthology.
The story is “Touched by Faelight” and unlike everything else I’ve written so far, this story is not part of the Magorian & Jones story world.
This is a standalone short story set in a world that the editor of the anthology repeatedly requests that I write more of.
We’ll see. 🙂
Maybe you can tell me if you’d like more of this world, once you’ve read the story.
Here’s some more about “Touched by Faelight”.
A new enemy of the Fae threatens two mere humans…
In contemporary Istanbul, a long, drawn-out civil war between Imperial Fae on the Asian side of the Bosphorus and an alliance of Fae occupying the ancient city has ground down the human occupants for ten long years.
Nikol—human, orphan and a Greek in a city of Turks—is touched by disturbingly magical abilities of her own. The humans in the city treat her with suspicion. Yet she is valuable to the human resistance and beloved by the resistance’s greatest spy among the Fae. Arda Sokol is terrified the Fae will learn of Nikol’s abilities, and his effort to protect her strains their relationship–until they must work together to defeat a new threat to the Fae, and he learns she is not weak at all…
“Touched by Faelight” is a short story by urban fantasy author Taylen Carver, included in the Street Magic urban fantasy anthology from Camden Park Press.

Enjoy — and tell me what you think. On the book’s page on my site there is a review button that lets you leave a review of the story. If you’d like to review the entire anthology overall, you can leave that review on the booksite where you buy the anthology itself.
