Short Stories

Into Vermilion

“Hemomancer. Few words inspire such terror. They are the lurkers in the dark, the hidden hand of history, the inspiration of nightmares and legends. For centuries, they have haunted and preyed upon us. But things are not as dire as they once were. Modern advancements and a greater public willingness to confront the hemomancer menace have driven them to the edge of extinction. Your children may even be part of the first generation born to a world without hemomancers!”

The Shape of Tomorrow, Plasmatech, 1986
