‘A Collection of Secrets’ by Rhea Rose

‘A Collection of Secrets’  is now out in Pulp Literature #35! In this new story by SFC member Rhea Rose, a young collector discovers the power of nature — and nurture.

Rhea says: “I know mermaids are popular, and many stories are written about them. When writing about popular creatures, a writer wants a new twist, a new lens through which to experience them. … I wanted my mermaids to have agency and power, be a force for the planet, and get some payback for the damage done to their world from polluting plastics. I wanted them to be more than sexy sirens.“

Rhea is also the featured author of this issue — be sure to read the interview too!

Rhea Rose has published many Canadian speculative short-fiction stories and poems. She is a three-time Aurora Award nominee, and is currently nominated a fourth time, for her editorial work and writing in Polar Starlight, an online zine of speculative poetry by Canadian authors.
