What starts out as a desire to see the great unknown outside the den quickly turns into more than Biting Shadow ever anticipated when he comes across a dying stranger who is desperately trying to pass on a ‘gift’. Now, as an unwitting host to alien technology, Biting Shadow struggles to make sense of the rapid changes made to his biology while also dealing with a hostile presence. These alterations may be the key to saving his family and even the planet, but at what cost to himself?
The Guardian is a collection of eleven science fiction short stories with the guardian theme in common. Whether they look after a single person, an entire planet, or the universe, guardians have a strong belief in protecting what they care most about. I’m quite happy to have my short story, Biting Shadow, as part of this collection.
