Book 4


Somewhere South of Cinco


The world shifts. So too, its refugees.


You've arrived in False Key: an island bridging the world of humans to the realm of mermaids and other shapeshifters. Tourists and runaways come from the mainland and the deep waters of the Florida Keys to seek adventure and find themselves. You'll meet bikers and biologists, cops and mafiosa.


Are you visiting? The locals may welcome you with open arms or open jaws. Trying to disappear? The island provides a haven for some and a final resting place for others. Consult the local shaman, magical bakery, or anhinga for what ails you. Belly up to the bar, but mind the spirits. Tune into the local stations, but watch out for alternate realities. Find romance, or sea serpents, or religious fanatics.


Newcomer beware—among the fantasy, poetry, horror and laughter, you may encounter: spiky drug dealers, healing shrikes, immortal podcasters, long-lost kin, tetchy ghost whales, exclamatory crayons, recalibrated ley lines, and spicy cakes.


Each book in the False Key series is a standalone collection of interconnected, contemporary urban fantasy short stories and poems. Somewhere South of Cinco, Book #5 in the False Key series, offers more than a dozen delicious diversions by award-winning and emerging authors. Dive in!
