Acceptances for Demeter’s Spicebox’s Inaugural Issue

I am very pleased to announce that we have accepted Mari Ness’s Sister and Bones as well as Shveta Thakrar’s Lavanya and Deepika for the inaugural issue of Demeter’s Spicebox. I found both stories had managed to capture different hidden truths at the kernel of the AT type 711, a folktale type that is very close to my heart. Both of these stories evoked a powerful emotional response, and I do hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I enjoyed reading them.
