Desmond Warzel is the author of a few dozen short stories, four of which (including this one) have been featured at Cast of Wonders. He's also particularly proud of his appearances in venerable magazines like Fantasy & Science Fiction, at nifty websites like Abyss & Apex, and in other quadrants of the vast podcasting galaxy, such as The Drabblecast. (He was on four episodes last year!) His most recent new work appears in the anthology Coven: Masterful Tales of Fantasy, from Purple Sun Press. He lives in Pennsylvania.
