The Horse Borrower is my latest short story and it appears in the Feb/March issue of Kayak Magazine.
The story is most definitely fiction, but it was inspired by the notes in a Canadian officers journal about a mysterious stranger who borrowed a military horse to hunt Fenians, but was never seen again.
Read the rest of the story in the February/March issue of Kayak, which is available in book stores and magazine shops across Canada. If your book store doesn't carry Kayak, then bug them to. It's a great Canadian magazine that deserves to be read by every kid in the country (and I'm not just saying that because I write for them!)
