MacCath, C. S. 2021. “Metal Crow and Ghost Crow.” In G Is for Ghosts, edited by Rhonda Parrish, 33–40. Poise and Pen Publishing.
C.S. MacCath's story of a mechanical bird imbued with the humanity and integrity which our world today so sorely needs, charmed me. The ghost element was incidental, but the overall effect was heartfelt and lovely.
