My teaser this week is from Acceptance, a strange and haunting book by Jeff Vandermeet. In this passage, one of the main characters has been living in the wilderness, alone -- except for a horned owl who keeps returning to her camp. This teaser is from page 180.

"The owl that has been my companion these thirty years died a week ago, without my being able to help, without knowing until too late. He had become an old owl, and although his eyes were still enormous and bright, his colors had faded, his camouflage tattered; he slept more and did not go out to hunt as often. I fed him mice by hand in his redoubt at the top of the ruined lighthouse.'"
