This reading of “The People of the Islands” — one of the micro-stories from the larger story cycle titled “What to Do with the Dead” — was originally posted on 24 June 2009 as part of the Author Spotlight feature that Shimmer ran about me. “What to Do with the Dead” first appeared in Shimmer #10. It was later expanded and then adapted into comics form by Rupert Bottenberg as part of the Lost Myths project that ran online in 2010-2012. The full, expanded text version was ultimately included in my Infinity Plus collection Nocturnes and Other Nocturnes (2013).
