What the Wind Blew in From Golconda by Emmett Schlenz.  Narrated by J.S. Arquin.  Featuring an afterword by Emmett Schlenz. #fantasy #magicalrealism


     Cora looked up from her notebook to watch the storm, and in the lingering of a lightning flash she saw something beyond the pomegranate trees, coming up over the bluff.  A dark smudge she took to be a lost balloon, getting closer.  As it neared, Cora noticed it was much too large to be a balloon.  Much too long.  And a balloon would have been shuddering under all that rain.  

     When she realized it was a person, floating above the orchard, surprise only weighed her down for a moment before she exploded out the backdoor.


Born and raised in Rhode Island, Emmett Schlenz studied English and History at Loyola Marymount University.  Currently he is a proud member of the Burgerville Workers Union in Portland, Oregon, and attends the People's Colloquium writers' workshop.  Everything he writes is a love letter to somebody.
