MELISSA HARDY – Dancing Sally

Melissa Hardy of Canada is the author of the novel A Cry For Bees. Her story, Dancing Sally, is from Dream Catcher, the second of a series of stories entitled Native Speakers Focussing on the Eastern band of the Cherokees – the first volume, Constant Fire, will be published this fall. Dream Catcher turns on the ancient Cherokee myth of Uktena, a serpent-monster which bears in its forehead a crystal, ulunsuti or transparent, which can foretell the future among other feats – there are records of transparents in the possession of Cherokees as late as the American Civil War – and is an attempt to depict and vivify the unique and complex historical predicament in which the most “civilized” of Native American peoples (considered so because of the great extent to which they bought into the white man’s system) found themselves between the late 18th century through to the removal to Oklahoma, “The Trail of Tears,” in 1838. A story from Constant Fire – Long Man The River – that first appeared in Exile, will appear this fall in The Journey Prize Anthology.

Seán Virgo of Canada is the author of several works of fiction: Selakhi, a novel, White Lies And Other Fictions Plus Two, Wormwood, and Waking In Eden; and Selected Poems. He is currently completing a new collection of short stories and a novel.
