Miracle, Texas

Rated 4.50/5 based on 4 reviews
The man rode into Amazon Valley the same way they all did, blindfolded, hooded, and with his hands tied behind his back. Men were trouble, and Justine liked them that way. A Weird West tale.

About DeAnna Knippling

Every summer as kids, we would host one group of cousins or another and jump off hay bales, create mazes by crawling the patterns through the tall grass, and steal green apples out of the garden. We also branded calves, killed chickens, and stole steak knives to threaten skunks with. But that's growing up on a farm for you.

Now I write fantasy, science fiction, and horror--and most of it comes from the worlds that I created as a farm kid, one way or another.

My first novel, Choose Your Doom: Zombie Apocalypse, was published by Doom Press in 2010 and can be purchased through Meta Geek.

"This is how I like my zombies: fast and funny. Choose this book, and you won't be choosing your doom. You'll be choosing hours of gooey, gory hilarity."
- Steve Hockensmith, New York Times best-selling author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls

My short story, “The End of the World,” about fairies on the Great Plains, received an honorable mention in Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year, Vol. 3.

I also write murder-mystery party games for Freeform Games in the UK.

Review by: Sarah Baethge on Nov. 19, 2011 :
Miracle Texas by DeAnna Knippling is a free short story reminding us that the people we try to ignore by filing away under a short label in our mind are complete actual people and deserve to be treated as such, too. When the tall young Amazon prostitute in this tale finds herself pushed away to the point where the man she has recently been with is gunning down her horse, she becomes more than a little angry.
Giles quickly learns that when you treat badly the people you intend to keep a secret with, the truths you’d rather deny have a habit of following you. And when your ‘partner in crime’ happens to be from a clan of mystically fierce warriors, there is little intelligence in invoking that person’s wrath.

This starts like it's going to be a comedy, but actually has a lot of feminist meat in it. A nice rousing tale with a cool author's note at the end discussing the origins of the story.
