She is a Shirley Jackson Award winner and her short fiction has been published in Clarkesworld, Lightspeed, and Strange Horizons, among others.

Julian Maclurg is a queer, trans writer, director, and voice actor. He has a first-class degree in creative writing and grew up attending theatre and music schools. Above all, he’s a storyteller and a writer, and couldn’t be more excited to share a story he’s so passionate about.  He helms The Night Shift Podcast, an urban fantasy queer led audio drama about a barista entangled trying to unearth the darkness of Echor City.  He's on twitter @gunpowderstars and the show can be found at
