Dear Santa, thank you for the dolls and pencils and the fish. It's Easter now, so I hope I didn't wake you but... honest, it is an emergency. There's a crack in my wall. Aunt Sharon says it's just an ordinary crack, but I know its not cause at night there's voices so... please please can you send someone to fix it? Or a policeman, or...
Back in a moment.
Thank you Santa.

Wednesday, April 12


Story Notes

My name is Zoe Fairchild, though everyone calls me Minx.  I live in Tarrytown, on the border of the fairy lands and the human world.  I'm the city's top female private investigator, which means most months I can make the rent, or eat, my choice.

My parents abandoned me here to look after myself when I was twelve.  They had their reasons, and I've mostly stopped hating them for it.  Before they walked out, each one left me with a gift.

My mother, the practical one, gave me an ebony-handled Colt 45 Special, saying only that a girl needed to know at least three ways to knock a man dead.

My other mother gave me the Nine Words of Unbinding.

That's where all the trouble began.
