Nebula Award-winning and World Fantasy Award-nominated short story

They were shy creatures, the jackalope wives, though there was nothing shy about the way they danced. You could go your whole life and see no more of them than the flash of a tail vanishing around the backside of a boulder. If you were lucky, you might catch a whole line of them outlined against the sky, on the top of a bluff, the shadow of horns rising off their brows.

This story is included in the anthologies The New Voices of Fantasy (2017), edited by Peter S. Beagle and Jacob Weisman, Nebula Awards Showcase 2016, edited by Mercedes Lackey, and Best of Apex Magazine: Volume 1; and was collected in Jackalope Wives and Other Stories.
