Author Irene Punti lives in Badalona (Catalonia) with her partner. Before that, she lived for a decade in Tarragona, the former capital of a Roman province and the city which inspired this story. Irene's stories have appeared in Gaslandia: a Dieselpunk Anthology and the NonBinary Review, among others.
Narrator Wulf Moon feasted on fantasy as a child when he lived with his Chippewa grandmother. He begged stories from her every night—fireside tales that fired his imagination. If Moon had a time machine, those are the days he would go back to. Since he doesn’t have a time machine, he tells stories. Learn more at driftweave.com.
