In the Serpent’s Wake is one of the standout stories comes toward the end of the collection. True to the collection’s title, each piece exhibits a strong, clearly defined voice, delivered in a range of forms. The stories we tell ourselves are not formed in a vacuum, but they are also not set in stone; these writers illustrate that stories are meant to be interrogated, and truths are meant to be told.
Editorial View Of In the Serpent’s Wake
Once upon a time (the world always starts with time), a dragon scholar climbed the stairs of an inn in the bustling port city of Mardou.There were fifty-six stairs. It only felt like twice as many as yesterday.The dragon was in human form, a saarantras; they wouldn’t have fit in the stairwell otherwise. They paused on each landing, leaning on a hooked cane. Dragons shouldn’t feel irritated or bitter, but Scholar Spira was usually in enough pain to feel a bit of both.Today their irritation was directed at Professor the dragon Ondir, who seemed determined to meddle endlessly with Spira’s expedition. Their bitterness was for their knees, which gritted and stabbed with every step as if they were full of broken glass.
At the top of the stairs, muffled voices were audible behind the professor’s door. Spira couldn’t discern the words, but a sniff at the doorknob answered their most pertinent question. The person they’d come to complain about—the person Ondir had foisted onto Spira at the last minute, whose hundred barrels of pyria were even now being loaded onto the Sweet Jessia—had arrived before them. This was going to be awkward.Spira feared no awkwardness, however. Spira was born awkward.They flung wide the door without knocking.“Enter,” said Professor the dragon Ondir, rather too late.The room was large and well appointed, with a view of the sea. A four-poster bed loomed at the end, curtains drawn (like a market stall, Spira thought). The right wall was dominated by windows, the left by a broad, roaring hearth.
