Golden Vanity

"Golden Vanity" was written for the first issue of Marion Zimmer Bradley's FANTASY Magazine. Although I was never particularly active in the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism), most of the rest of the family was, so I heard a lot of stories. SCA combat works on the principle of acknowledging the blows as if they had been made by steel weapons (instead of rattan), so a fighter can be "killed" while not sustaining any injuries worse than bruises.

"Golden Vanity" is part of my collection MAGIC IN SUBURBIA, which is available in paperback and Kindle formats.
