Sarah Avery is an escaped academic who won the 2015 Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for her first book, Tales from Rugosa Coven. Her short fiction has appeared in Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Space and Time, Fantasy Scroll, and elsewhere. At Black Gate she was a columnist for ten years. Avery coedited the Trafficking in Magic, Magicking in Traffic anthology with David Sklar. A novella, The Imlen Brat, and much of her short fiction backlist are available from the major online booksellers. Her work is supported in part by the Maryland State Arts Council and the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County.
The book’s filling out in the sparse bits this week, more than I would have predicted in light of a sudden onslaught of paid labor.
