Lyda Morehouse writes about what gets people in trouble: religion and politics. Her first novel, Archangel Protocol, a cyberpunk hard-boiled detective novel with a romantic twist, won the 2001 Shamus. Fallen Host made the preliminary Nebula ballot. Her most recent work is Apocalypse Array. Lyda lives in Saint Paul with her partner of nineteen years, son Mason, and four cats. You can read other pieces by Lyda in our archive.
