Sheep Might Fly: The Patrician Part 3

New episode of “The Patrician” by Tansy Rayner Roberts

This short story featured in Love and Romanpunk by Tansy Rayner Roberts. This story won both the Washington SF Small Press Award and the Ditmar in 2012. If you enjoyed Julia Agrippina’s Secret Family Bestiary, this is the story about what happened next (cough, two thousand years later).

Clea Majora lives in a replica of a Roman city, built in the Australian outback. When a hero comes to town to rid the world of lamia, manticores and other ancient monsters, she is drawn to his quest, and forges a friendship that will last for a lifetime.

PART ONE: LAMIA

PART TWO: GARGOYLES

PART THREE: NAIADS
