Series: InCryptid #0.11
Author: Seanan McGuire
Released: August 5, 2014
Bury Me In Satin is the next short story in my Seanan McGuire binge. Once again, we’re delving back into the world of InCryptid. However, this time around, we’re focused on a very different character. Yes, Fran and the rest are still there…but Mary’s story is finally coming to light.
Oh my goodness. This story is everything I had been hoping for and more. Yes, it’s heartbreaking. It was always going to be heartbreaking – all ghost stories are, in their own way. Yet this short answers so many questions. However, I’ll admit that the somber tones were a nice touch. It fit in with the larger ghost world that McGuire has developed over the years.
I wonder if we’ll get more Mary-specific stories? Personally, I would absolutely love that. The ghosts (Mary and Rose) are some of my favorite characters, and I would love nothing more than to see a whole lot more of both of them (and yes, I know all about Rose’s series – that’s how I got into this one).
