At The Virgin’s Doorstep

Warning! Some people consider this story to be morally repugnant.

In “At the Virgin’s Doorstep,” the first fantasy short story that New York Times Bestselling author David Farland ever wrote—and which some people insist should be burned—a plague of unicorns threatens the crops of a small town, and so a young man stakes out the house of a virgin, hoping that she’ll lure the unicorns in.

It’s a wry story, about a young man growing up and facing a very small evil. Yet the reader is left to
wonder: is David Farland anti-virgin, anti-unicorn, or just some kind of a sick puppy?
