Two weeks ago I published the first story in my House of Cards inspired fantasy, and this is a continuation of it, fused with the characters and world of my work-in-progress novel, The City of the Gods.
I have another short story for you this week, though whether more will be added depends on your reception! I do plan to return to my House of Cards-inspired story next weekend and there’ll be plenty more to come.
As you surely know, House of Cards Season 3 recently aired on Netflix. The US show has always delved more readily into the relationship at its heart than the BBC drama which inspired it and the new season went further still. Some didn’t respond to the change in direction for the show, but the show’s fictional writer turned biographer Tom Yates is correct; the relationship between Claire and Frank is everything. In this piece, I imagine a similar power-driven couple not in the Oval Office, but in a fantasy world.
Don’t worry, there are no spoilers for the show.
Here are examples of what I believe to be my best writing from the past year.
