The Watchmaker's Wife

22 Aug 2012

The lovely people at Daily Science Fiction have been kind enough to publish my story, The Watchmaker's Wife.

The story started life as a picture I made. I showed it here on this blog and Milo James Fowler asked who she was. I'd never thought of her being anyone, she was just a picture. But after I read the question, the name 'the watchmaker's wife' popped into my head and I felt the first inklings of a story nagging at the back of my mind.

So I wrote it.

This was the picture.


  1. Congratulations! It's a great story for a great market.

  2. Wow, wonderfully dark story. It's going in my favorites file. :)

  3. I loved this one. Congrats again, Lydia. :)

  4. What a terribly mesmerizing tale, Lydia. So well-written and gut-wrenching. Very nice work.
