This week’s treat: Amal El-Mohtar reads her Clockwork Jungle Book story “The Fishbowl,” a story of oracular fish. I love the imagery in this story; and it doesn’t hurt that no one else wrote about fish!
Amal’s stories have appeared in Shimmer twice before: Sparrow and Egg in Issue #6 (read our interview with her!), and The Crow’s Caw in Issue #4 (read our other interview!). Since then, she’s launched online poetry ‘zine Goblin Fruit, won a Rhysling, and recently had stories in Strange Horizons and Cabinet des Fees. It’s a delight to see her name in our pages again!
