I really liked this. I like Shimmer generally, so I'm not surprised that this beautifully, eerie story ended up there.

Thank you! It's my first sale to them and I am very pleased with it.

I'm terrible at periods. Was it set in the '30s?

Yes, about the summer of 1937, so you can't be all that terrible. There are not that many direct temporal markers in the story: the major name-checks are the Irish Civil War, the Spanish Civil War, and the discovery of Stoneyisland Man. I kept filtering wider geopolitical stuff out of the background of the story because it was not strictly pertinent and I was trying, as previously stated, not to die in a research hole.
