PodCastle Miniature 98: Traveling Mercies

by Rachael K Jones
read by Khaalidah Muhammed-Ali
First published in Strange Horizons.

Rated PG.

In the old stories, strangers at the door could be disguised gods, so you had to invite them in. It was a sin to turn away a guest.

Atithi devo bhava. Sanskrit: the guest is God.

I am not God, though I am old.

As someone who travels a lot, I felt a special connection to this story. Loved it.

I thought this was a nice take on the vampire,  I do wonder how she eats, or should I say who.
