Once upon a time, there was a nerd who wrote about magic, mayhem, pew-pew, and space. In the real world, A.E. Ash is an editor for a mortuary science publications index and spends daylight hours categorizing the clinical, work-a-day business of death. She is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop but the most valuable lessons she's learned about writing she begged/borrowed/stole from the incredible weirdness of everyday life. You can find her work in Five Magazine and Luna Station Quarterly, and you can contact her on Twitter at @dogmycatzindeed or email her at dogmycatzindeed@gmail.com

Kythryne Aisling is a jewelry artist, performance poet, musician, parent, weightlifter, and brain tumor survivor; her poetry has previously appeared in Stone Telling and Interfictions. Forgetting things is her superpower, and she is inordinately fond of glitter. Her jewelry can be found at wyrdingstudios.com and she tweets about anything that crosses her mind at @wyrdingstudios
