Lyn’s dark fantasy webfiction Addergoole was among my first discoveries in the world of online fiction, and I remain keenly addicted to this serial today. A while ago, Lyn started posting her second serial — Wild One’s Blood — which is set in the same world as Addergoole. I asked her five quick questions about the story.
How wild are you?
LT: Not nearly as much so as I was when I was young, but “still crazy, after all these years.”
How about your characters — who is the “wild one”?
LT: Fenny, definitely. Barely tame, rough around the edges. Plus, don’t tell Nathaniel, but it’s her story.
How much does Wild One’s Blood overlap with your other ongoing serial, Addergoole?
LT: They’re in the same world, in different eras. Toy is mentioned in a bonus story of Addergoole (In the Hall of the Elf Queen), but that link is pretty much the only direct link.
Fill in the blank: People who like __________ will like Wild One’s Blood.
LT: “The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror” anthologies and Ellen Datlow & Terri Windling’s Fairy Tale anthologies.
Who is the sexiest character in WOB, and why?
LT: None of them are very sexy. Lady Jinani SilverRope, probably, as she has that Victorian Madame thing down pat.
Now go read Wild One’s Blood (if you’re over 18).
