The Embassy at Fontainebleau

I have a short piece, "The Embassy at Fontainebleau", in the anthology ORNITHOLOGIÆ, which is available now from Egaeus Press. 

My story involves ley lines and telluric forces, distant radiation from decaying stars, the fickle intelligence of the winds and the pulsation of magnetic currents, riots, fires, incendiary slogans, prayers to the night wind of Napoli, an oracular metronome, the rites of litigation, the howling of wolves around an opera house, symmetries, intervals, reversals, inversions, the nourishment of ancient ores, acrostics, ballistics, steganography, and forgery, as well as and several other things besides, but principally birds.
