Fun times! Today I received my author’s copy of After Hours: Tales from the Ur-Bar, the anthology edited by Joshua Palmatier and Patricia Bray that includes my short story, “The Tavern Fire.”
This is my first publication as D.B. Jackson, and so I’m very excited to see the story in print at last. After Hours is a beautiful volume — DAW did a terrific job with it, as did Joshua and Patricia.
Briefly, “The Tavern Fire” offers one explanation for the Great Boston Fire of 1760, which destroyed much of the Cornhill section of the city — some three hundred and fifty buildings — without causing a single death. For more about the story, please visit this page. Or you could just buy a copy of After Hours. Its official release date is March 1.
