Shanty Girl

Fantasy Fantasy - Speculative

by Eugen Bacon

Crippled? Fuck that. Her right foot drags like a dog’s leash. Her right hand has muscle to lift a metal crane. Ivy Freeman is a powerhouse to reckon with. As far as serial killers go.

A review of Shanty Girl from the CUT team....

Ivy Freeman is a paradox. Disabled but fast and with almost hydraulic strength, a victim of polio but a predator out in the world. Eugen Bacon’s dark tale mixes fantasy with gritty realism, and vivid description with delicious turns of phrase. A short story that’s as “mean as a territorial hippo.”
