  1. Mod note: A.C. Wise was too modest, so let me tell you about her credentials (via the About page of her website):

    A.C. Wise was born and raised in Montreal, and currently lives in the Philadelphia area. She is the author of numerous short stories, available in print and online. In addition to her fiction writing, she co-edits Unlikely Story, and writes a monthly Women to Read: Where to Start column at SF Signal. Her first short story collection will be published by Lethe Press in 2015.

    Here’s her full bibliography.

  2. I bid $30, in the full expectation of being trounced later.
