Darpana is a woman made of math, enslaved to the mathematicians who created her. Any human or humans who stand too closely become her input and her personality and body change with each new encounter. When no one is around, she disappears. How would you escape if you only existed in the company of others?

In this collection, Matthew Sanborn Smith explores dark futures and fantasies of people merging bodies, the sky splitting open, and an artist’s asylum that houses deeply disturbing work.

Stories include:
The Algebraic Woman
Puppies for Sale
And the Midwives Their Faces Abloom
Maisy’s Many Souls
Red and Roxanne
The Cat in the Helmet Comes Back

About the Author

Matthew Sanborn Smith is a writer who lives in South Florida. His work has appeared at, Nature, and Chizine, among others. His story, "Beauty Belongs to the Flowers," was given an Honorable Mention in The Year's Best Science Fiction. Besides his too infrequent contributions to the StarShipSofa podcast, he is also hardly ever seen at and heard even less on the SF Signal podcast. But what tops them all is how he is almost never heard on the SFF Audio podcast. He is, however, the lord of the Beware the Hairy Mango podcast, which celebrated its fifth anniversary earlier this year. He is one head of the writing hellhound known as Cerberus, the other heads belonging to Grant Stone and Dan Rabarts. He once held a Hugo award in his sweaty hands before security asked him to give it back to its rightful owner.
