Dying of starvation in the harshest winter she has ever known, Litha abandons her family to save them. And in the frozen wilds she encounters a mysterious man in white, the only one who can save her.
This short dark fantasy romance from new award winning epic fantasy and dark fantasy writer Jean Lowe Carlson explores sacrifice and love via sex and magic, in the style of Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel Series and Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series. With a deep storytelling style similar to Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicles and a flavor of fairytale magic, this short fiction is typical of Ms. Carlson’s style, of writing complex and emotional fantasy and sci fi for adults.
A thrilling dark fantasy mystery, The Man in White was longlisted for the OWT Short Fiction Prize in 2016.

This is a good short story. It is an easy read and well worth reading. Enjoy
I am not a fan of short stories, usually find them fulfilling. The depth of this story surprised me, and held interest until the end.
It's a short story about 20ish pages, not bad. Easy to figure out, but nicely done.
Wow new fantasy name!
