Well, Zephyr has landed. With any luck she’ll be at a bookstore near you (though if that bookstore is a Barnes & Noble, that will be the MAINSTREAM section, NOT Fantasy/SF—and god, don’t ask me why, the story is too long for the telling).

It was really great, and then I met the *demon baby* who liked to sleep in a shoebox and made alternately astute and baffling observations about the universe, and everything was so perfect I could cry.

“To love light, you have to love dark. I'm not trying to be profound, I know you'll understand. I don't mean that you have to hate to love, or that you have to die to live.

Alaya Dawn Johnson, Zombies Vs. Unicorns

“Think of it like the best mac and cheese you've ever had. No neon yellow Velveeta and bread crumbs. I'm talking gourmet cheddar, the expensive stuff from Vermont that crackles as it melts into the crust on top.

Alaya Dawn Johnson, Zombies Vs. Unicorns
