This is the ninth of my Lockdown Stories The Cartomancer.
As I hope you know I am writing a story a week based on suggestions from you all of a genre, a character and a location. They will be printed in book form at the end of the crisis and all profits given to a local foodbank.
This one is based on an idea from my file of potential stories as I did not have any external suggestions – if you would like to help and get a story dedicated to you including in the book, please send me ideas to either firstname.lastname@example.org, via messenger on my Facebook page Tim Newton Anderson, or in a comment on this post in my blog.
Like the earlier story “The Sea’s Gift” this gave me the opportunity to invent a new type of magic. In the earlier story it was based on the exchange system Potlatch and in this it is based on maps.
