"Matricide" Short Story Recommendation

Author: Lucy Sussex
Published: SciFi.com
Genre: Fantasy
Word Count: 6.000 approx

Sylivie Lester's life is built around things. Beautiful things, collectors' things, things to sell. Even her prompt for keeping a baby is built on the idea of the things she could buy it. Other people want things, too, things that build an idea of the past, things that might re-shape the present. Only one person has had a surfeit of things, but his life, too, is empty.

A thoughtful, eerie tale by Lucy Sussex, who might be well known for her Young Adult fiction and for her exquisitly short book reviews in the Melbourne Age. For an article about her, read here.
