Margo Lerwill nests in a windowless cubicle in a dark government hive, furtively scribbling out plans for the destruction of civilization disguised as harmless urban fantasy. Epic fantasy alternate weekends in months containing the letter ‘r’. She enjoys Caravaggio paintings, South Park humor, and movies where the monsters stay dead at the end. Her work has previously appeared in Leading Edge, Deep Magic, and numerous local and regional periodicals no one has ever heard of.

I've been eyeing this short story for a while and kept wanting to buy it. It was the first thing I read on my new nook Simple Touch.
I had some trouble getting into the story, due to some turns of phrase and sentence structure that I found awkward. As I kept reading, I was drawn in and realized I wasn't reading it with the right flow, and therefore I wasn't quite picking up on all the meanings right.
Once I caught on, I *loved* it. I'm sure I'll be re-reading it in the future.
"Keep" is a fascinating classic fantasy story that both abuses and uses the overused tropes. I recommend it to anybody who likes traditional fantasy.
