Product description

Product Description

In Uncle Vernon’s garden, the river of stars might sweep you away. Satyrs weave tales on looms made of moonbeams. Worlds fall and die in every single teardrop. And Uncle Vernon tells stories that can’t possibly be true.

But Benji knows that his uncle will only tell him one lie in his whole life, and hidden among those stories full of secrets both frightening and wonderful is the single lie that might break Benji’s heart.

This is a fantasy short story. It was first published in Realms of Fantasy, February 2006.


"This tale will grab you, touch you emotionally, and leave you thinking about it long after you've read it."

- Scott M. Sandridge, Tangent Online.

"The revelation of the actual lie is beautifully set up, and the story is both enjoyable to read and 'true'."
- Richard Horton, Locus.
