About Cory Skerry

Cory Skerry lives in the Northwest U.S. in a spooky old house that he doesn't like to admit is haunted. When he's not peddling (or meddling with) art supplies, he's writing, reading submissions at or copy-editing for Shimmer Magazine, and often off exploring with his sweet, goofy pit bulls. He's a graduate of both Viable Paradise and Clarion West, and his work has appeared in Strange Horizons, Fantasy/Lightspeed, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies, among others.

Review by: Virginia Herrick on July 14, 2013 :
Great character, description and suspense. Skerry skillfully introduces a scenario rich with implications, and a heroine who champions the underdogs -- even when they mysteriously scorn her assistance. As the every-woman super warrior trying to do the right thing in a complicated world, Imuri Bane must figure out which injustice to right first ... a paradigm very apt for our modern world.
