Although I don’t celebrate Halloween, I was still honored when my story Tiger, Tiger was selected to be released today, of all days. The Havok team must have thought it appropriately creepy and spooky!
Tiger, Tiger is the story of a young man burdened with fire-based powers over which he has no control. Will he end up hurting an innocent? Or will the innocent reach out to him instead? The story’s vibe is X-Men meets Agents of SHIELD’s Ghost Rider—read it here! (Free today only.)
As for the title…I thought the opening lines of William Blake’s poem were wonderfully (frightfully?) applicable to my main character.
Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
In what distant deeps or skies.
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
If you read Tiger, Tiger, I’d love to hear what you think of it—and whether or not you agree that the poem is applicable. 😉 Let me know in the comments!
