Blasted is a story of Ruby Jones, an irreverent, exuberant, and troubled woman who lurches between love affairs and cities. The narrative shifts between generations and geographies, between contemporary life and stories as old as the hill that looms over Ruby's birthplace. All the while, she is haunted by mysteries that surround her father and the generations before him. When Ruby unravels at last, she must face the demons that pursue her. Steeped in Newfoundland folklore, Blasted mines a rich vein of experience, layering the mundane and the magical, and evoking the forces that inhabit the land.

Writer, performer, and choreographer Kate Story was born and raised in St. John's, Newfoundland, in a house built by her great-great grandfather beneath the Southside Hills. Her short fiction has been published in magazines including Broken Pencil and Kiss Machine, and her written performance works have been produced as plays, performance art works, and theatre-dance productions in Ontario (Toronto, Peterborough) and Newfoundland and Labrador (St. John's). She has been twice nominated (2004 and 2006) for the Ontario Arts Council's K.M. Hunter Artist Award. Blasted is her first novel.Review:
"...Story's stream of consciousness style of writing beautifully enhances the sense of temporal and special dislocation represented by movement through and slippage into fairy realms. Her poetic use of language adds to the depth of the landscape, it's history, and the people upon it, reveling in the simultaneous beauty and terror embedded in the land." Derek Newman-Stille, Speculating Canada: Canadian Horror, Science Fiction, and Fantasy
