  1. 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.”

    Bravo.
