Show Notes

Jennifer Hykes has previously had stories appear in Betwixt, Abyss & Apex, PodCastle, and Apex Magazine. She lives with her husband and two cats just outside of Pittsburgh, PA. She is fairly certain that the cats are not enchanted princes, but it is sometimes hard to tell with these things.





Your narrator is our own assistant editor, community manager, and flash fiction contest runner Dani Daly. You can follow her on Twitter or say hello over at the EA forum.






February is Women in Horror Month, an international, grassroots initiative, which encourages supporters to learn about and showcase the underrepresented work of women in the horror industries. Whether they are on the screen, behind the scenes, or contributing in their other various artistic ways, it is clear that women love, appreciate, and contribute to the horror genre. Check out the hashtag WiHM8 for plenty of suggestions. Or if you have the stomach for stronger fair, our sister show Pseudopod.

You can find all our own Women in Horror episodes here!

Theme music is “Appeal to Heavens” by Alexye Nov, available at MusicAlley.com.
