Can you tell us something about yourself? I’m sure you’re far more interesting than the WordPress verbiage above. 🙂
Hello, Julia Evans.
I just read your story, “Anthropoda,” in Issue 12 of The Radvocate, and one line in particular stayed with me:
“Every hushed I love you written on her belly was dragged across the rough tropical epiphytes, bleeding her secrets atop the type of symbiosis they could never master.”
Wow, thank you, so much! I had forgotten about that line. I’d forgotten the epiphytes.
I love them. They grow on trees as separate organisms but sustain themselves–they are not parasites. Again, well done.
