About Faith L. Justice

Faith L. Justice writes in her historic land marked home “The Suffragette House” in Brooklyn, New York where she lives with her family and the required gaggle of cats. Her award-winning fiction has appeared in such publications as Circles in the Hair, The Copperfield Review, and Beyond Science Fiction and Fantasy. She’s published over fifty articles in such venues as Salon.com, Writer's Digest, and The Writer. Faith is a frequent contributor to Strange Horizons, Associate Editor for Space and Time Magazine, and co-founded a writer’s workshop many more years ago than she likes to admit. For fun, she digs in the dirt – her garden and various archaeological sites.

Review by: Melanie Reinhart on April 20, 2015 :
Delightful, interesting read! Fabulous bibliography, too, for those who'd like to follow up on the sources used. Ms Justice has a wonderful ability to bring characters and historical periods to life in the way she writes. I particularly enjoyed the way she did the 'myth-busting' around the burning of the Great Library in Alexandria - this is the kind of history we should be taught!
