What do you do when you have accused the woman you love of necromancy?
Bird Talk is a short story about Roger, a young priest living in a small medieval English town, who is trying to uncover what he believes are foul magical deeds. But instead he manages to implicate the women he desires in accusations of witchcraft. With only the town drunk to help him, Roger must untangle the mess he has created.
Bird Talk is a heady concoction of gritty medieval life, humour and magic.

About the Author
I am a UK based writer, living in the southeast of England. I mostly write historical fiction and fantasy, although I also have been known to write a bit of Science Fiction now and again. My favourite authors include Gene Wolfe, Ursula le Guin and Iain Banks, and I'm currently getting into Dan Simmons and Neal Stephenson. Outside SF&F I enjoy the thrillers of Robert Harris and I love Tolstoy's War and Peace. I am also the Editor of Alt Hist, the new magazine of Historical Fiction and Alternate History. My reading tastes, I think, are fairly broad. I like Gene Wolfe, Leo Tolstoy, Ursula le Guin and Iain Banks in particular, and I’m currently getting into Dan Simmons and Neal Stephenson.
