Our 25th Anniversary Season continues with all participants from the counties of Queens and Kings.  Some may be recent transplants, but dat, er, that still scars one for life -- and for the better.

Brooke BolanderBrooke Bolander writes weird things of indeterminate genre, most of them leaning rather heavily towards fantasy. She attended the University of Leicester 2004-2007 studying History and Archaeology and is an alum of the 2011 Clarion Writers’ Workshop at UCSD.

Her work has been featured in Lightspeed, Strange Horizons Nightmare, Reflection’s Edge, and the upcoming anthologies Aliens: Recent Encounters and Help Fund My Robot Army. She is a clean-burning, energy-efficient engine that runs primarily off tea, the works of Peter S. Beagle and Fumito Ueda, and feedback from her readers.  Follow her on Twitter @BBolander, or at her website, brookebolander.com.
