Jennifer Shelby hunts for stories in the beetled undergrowth of fairy-infested forests. She fishes for them in the dark space between the stars. As part of her ongoing catch-and-release program, this is Jennifer’s second story in Metaphorosis. You can also find her stories in Cricket, Kaleidotrope, and many fine anthologies. Her first novella, Slipstreamers: Plague of the Dreamless is now available from Engen Books.
