Meet the Author

Daughter of two Cuban political exiles, M.C.A. Hogarth was born a foreigner in the American melting pot and has had a fascination for the gaps in cultures and the bridges that span them ever since. She has been many things—-web database architect, product manager, technical writer and massage therapist—-but is currently a full-time parent, artist, writer and anthropologist to aliens, both human and otherwise.

Her fiction has variously been recommended for a Nebula, a finalist for the Spectrum, placed on the secondary Tiptree reading list and chosen for two best-of anthologies; her art has appeared in RPGs, magazines and on book covers.

(My Headline there may be trying too hard...) A return to tragedy, if perhaps second-hand, and a charlatan fortune-teller whose usual good business sense (and other good sense) deserts him -- to his disquiet, as his predictions are more accurate than he expects. I quite like how there's a mix of his "reading the client" *and* whispers of something More. No, really, coincidence. (Keep telling yourself that, Keshul. Maybe you're right. Honest.) This is a very short story, and relatively little happens. The narrator, Keshul, carries it strongly, though. I know there are more Keshul stories, and I anticipate them with, er, anticipation. Lots of it.
