A number of my books and stories are only available as ebooks (although Beekeeping for Beginners appears inside the US paperback of Pirate King.) Some of these pieces were out of print, others are newly written or newly edited. And apologies, for those dedicated to the printed page: so far, only Laurie R. King’s Sherlock Holmes is available in print-on-demand.
Laurie R. King takes readers way back in her bestselling series with this exclusive ebook short story, as Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes embark upon the riskiest adventure of their partnership: their wedding.
“Mila’s Tale” is midrash—the retelling of a Biblical passage. Half of it is a previously unpublished Laurie R. King short story; the other half is the author’s commentary on the text (“Jephthah’s Daughter” of Judges 11) with some suggestions for further reading. This is the first in Laurie’s proposed Ladies of Spirit project, a collection of Modern Midrashes accompanied by her analysis and reflections, all of them based on religious texts or figures.
