I got a lot of my ideas for Darkover stories from minor characters or incidents in the Darkover novels. In this case the basic idea came from a reference in FORBIDDEN TOWER where Callista mentions that Hilary Castamir, while they were at Arilinn Tower together, encountered a layer of fire in the overworld and came back to her own body to find her feet physically burned. I wrote the first draft of this, and then Marion did a pass through it, so this story is a collaborative effort.
"Firetrap" is available for Kindle and Nook and from Fictionwise.
