Written on the Coast: Thirteen Tales of Magic & Mayhem Written in Lincoln City, OR by Dayle A. Dermatis

Once upon a time, a writer journeyed to the enchanting Oregon Coast and took a workshop. Then, drawn by the siren’s song of knowledge and craft, she went back and took a whole bunch more. The result? WRITTEN ON THE COAST: THIRTEEN TALES OF MAGIC & MAYHEM WRITTEN IN LINCOLN CITY, OR. Ranging from traditional fantasy to science fiction to contemporary fantasy to the undefinably absurd, the stories in this collection will appeal to readers of all types of speculative fiction. In WRITTEN ON THE COAST you’ll find out why Dayle A. Dermatis’s short fiction has been called “really, really good”! With a foreword by USA Today bestselling author Dean Wesley Smith.

“This collection of fiction is a fantastic treat.”
USA Today bestselling author Dean Wesley Smith.

“Dayle A. Dermatis’s ‘If the Shoe Fits’ is a funny (and rather ingenious) semi-modern twist on Cinderella, in which we find out why that shoe was really so important to everyone.”
