Ba'byl is a short story about a thief...

Cover of Ba'byl by Rae Botsford End. Parchment background with an image of a crown.

“Ba’byl” is a short story about a thief who journeys to a failing city and asks the queen why she built it to begin with. It’s a story about what we value.


Why do we value what we can’t have?

Read the whole short story on Amazon now! You can read it with Kindle, including the free Kindle app for iOS and Android, and Amazon Cloud Reader in your regular browser on your desktop or laptop computer.

(It’s a good lunchtime read.)

See the About and Portfolio pages for more about my writing.
