By day, Evan Dicken studies old Japanese maps and crunches data for medical research at Ohio State University. By night, he does neither of these things. His fiction has most recently appeared in Unlikely Story, Apex, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies, and he has stories forthcoming from publishers such as Analog and Gallery of Curiosities. Please feel free to visit him at evandicken.com.
