Wolf Warriors III is now out in paperback, featuring my short story “Solongo.” I first wrote this story in high school, then edited it so it nabbed 1st place in fiction at my undergrad’s annual writing contest. It went through further editing to fit this volume’s winter theme. Most stories feature wolves from Europe and America, leaving wolves from Asia unsung and unheard of. Wolves hold a special place in Mongolian culture, but few people are aware of this, and I felt compelled to shed more light on this fascinating part of the world with this little tale. I originally intended to make a novel out of this, but have decided to leave it as it is. I might expand on it later, I don’t know. This is my 1st contribution to this anthology series, and I’d be happy to write more stories for future volumes.
Blurb on the back: “Wolves have terrified and mystified us, their howls echoing through the words of our fairy tales, the texts of our stories, and the deepest crevices of our imaginations. Wolf Warriors III presents a diverse collection of artwork, poetry, essays, and short stories, featuring award-winning writers Juley Harvey and Graham Houghton. This anthology captures the various faces of the wolf in winter: from the wolves howling at the Yule festival to the wolf eyes staring at you through the blizzard. The howls of these warriors will make you smile, make you cry, and, most of all, make you want to raise your own howl to join the chorus.”
