The Girl Detective

“Think of the underworld as the back of your closet, behind all those racks of clothes that you don’t wear anymore. Things are always getting pushed back there and forgotten about. The underworld is full of things that you’ve forgotten about.”

First published in Event Horizon in 1999. Later reprinted in The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror: Thirteenth Annual Collection and Link’s short story collection Stranger Things Happen, a Salon Book of the Year and one of the Village Voice’s 25 Favorite Books of 2001.

Read by Alex Wilson.
