Seven Kinds of Baked Goods by Maria Haskins.  Narrated by J.S. Arquin.  #Fantasy #Fiction #Podcast #Poison #Assassins #Dwarves #Blades


"The smell of mold and winter-stored potatoes chokes me as I dangle across the high-cantled saddle; the coarse fabric of the sack chafing my face and hands, the rag stuffed in my mouth ensuring I can't even complain about the bumping and bruising.

     Yet even now, even here, I wouldn't change a thing about the life I've lived, if the chance were given.  After all, it has to count for something that I'm the only Dwarven crafter ever to cause more deaths with flaky pastry than a well-honed blade."


Maria Haskins is a Swedish-Canadian writer and translator.  She writes speculative fiction and poetry, and lives just outside Vancouver with a husband, two kids, and a very large black dog.  Her work has appeared in Flash Fiction Online, Shimmer, Cast of Wonders, and elsewhere.  Find her online at mariahaskins.com.
