Genetically-altered residents of a volcanic desert are left to suffer and die as nanomachines terraform the world around them in "N is for Nanomachine", available in A is for Apocalypse.
"A planet of synthetic people (it would be reductive to use ‘beings’) face an inevitable extinction at the hands of the human race, who created them in the first place. It is told from the perspective of a scientist, a painter (who together are a couple), a poet, a composer and the head of state. Through letters from each of these characters you are given access to the beautiful aspects of life, which makes the inescapable climax all the more unbearable." - Sabotage Reviews
This collection of poems and tales, spanning eight years of publication in Pagan and speculative fiction magazines and journals, includes award-nominated poetry and fiction that illuminates Pagan life and relationships with the sacred.
"C. S. MacCath is simply one of the finest Pagan fiction writers working today. Her stories express the complexity, beauty, and chaos of contemporary life with both precision and passion -- a rare combination, indeed. "The Ruin of Beltany Ring" is but one of the enthralling tales to appear in this wonderful collection, but it is my favorite of the set; to tell more would be unfair to the reader, so I will simply urge you to set aside whatever you are doing right now and dip into this collection at once." - Anne Newkirk Niven: Editor, Witches & Pagans Magazine
