The Storm Painter, by Ayodele Olofintuade

[Strange Horizons]
★★★☆☆ Average

(Modern Fantasy) Adé’s art show is going really well, and the last thing she needs is some of her relatives (who happen to be Yoruba gods) to turn up telling her she’s in danger. (3,982 words; Time: 13m)

Review: 2019.289 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: In this story, Adé has to choose between her personal freedom and her responsibilities.

I like the idea of young demigods being interns for a volatile water spirit.

Con: It all seems a little haphazard. Adé’s sudden memory of her mother’s death is a little too convenient. Conversely, if Olokun knew the party guests were there to kill her, why didn’t they tell her?
