Sorceress Islands is a group of islands with very different cultures. On Cyara all mages are prosecuted and executed, while on Riatic there is a large mage college. Travel between the islands is only possible by crossing magical bridges that messes you up, otherwise you need really sturdy ships to travel far into the ocean avoiding loads of coral reefs and other dangers before you can turn back to get to one of the other islands.
Kora Leon is a courier in the City of Shadows. Her magical power of flight is suited for her job since she can deliver sensitive packages without touching the ground.
Employed by the government, she does whatever she can to keep a measure of freedom for herself while the shadows and the government tries to take it.
The City of Shadows is a futuristic metropolis, where criminals are called shadows and criminality is described in shades of shadows. The government keeps careful track of every citizen and you can’t travel between sectors any way you want.

Her charges, the Raun version of cats (similar but also not), can make a lot of trouble for her.
As a valkyrie, Tyra escorts the souls of Swedish soldiers who died in combat to Valhalla. In this twenty-first century, she barely works because Sweden has not been at war for a long, long time.

A cold and wet autumn makes a visit to the graveyard uncomfortable for twenty-something years old Silas Stone. Nothing he notices. Not when more important matters are at hand. His brother had died with things still unresolved between them. Another great contemporary short story from Felicia Fredlund, author of At the Traffic Lights.
The traffic light flashes yellow in an otherwise perfect neighborhood. Model houses, white picket fences, green lawns. Everything completely normal except for the broken light. A woman waiting for the car that will change everything. Another great contemporary short story from Felicia Fredlund, author of Dear Brother.
