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.

A great tease followup from Defense of the Fiddler, looking forward to the next full story!

This is not a stand-alone. If you don't read Spots the Space Marine: Defense of the Fiddler, then you won't have a *clue* what is going on. It says "epilogue" and it means it.
It's also not really a wrapping up of loose ends, though it does that a bit -- it leaves some rather important ones dangling. Now, do I want to chase after the author with a foam sword for a sequel for this, or for "Worth of a Shell"... Decisions, decisions!
If you enjoyed Defense of the Fiddler, you'll want this.
