Today’s column comes from your humble Weekend Editor, Eric O. Scott, who has written for The Wild Hunt since 2012. He has a PhD in English from the University of Missouri and his first novel, The Lives of the Apostates, was published by Moon Books in 2013. The Wild Hunt’s weekend section is always open for submissions. Please send queries to firstname.lastname@example.org. I was in London on midwinter’s day in 2016, and at 4:30 PM it had already gone dark.
