The fearsome Serpent Storm that surrounds Yrthull has long kept the Myrrh from their ancestral homeland Beyond. Cut off from their god, Lord Gata of the Seas, they have been forced to forage spiritual sustenance, called pava, from the hated landloggers of the Drylands beyond the seas.
As years passed, their bodies became resistant to the pava of the Drylanders and they can no longer sustain themselves on the scraps that they steal.
Now, their only hope is to fulfill a prophecy that will eventually allow their people to cross the Serpent Storm and return to the fabled Halls of Gata.
Beyond is part of STORM, an anthology published by Linzé Brandon on behalf of the Pretoria Writers' Group.
