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.

This short story is somewhere between a fairy tale and a horror story, with inexplicable magic and an ending that's anything but happy. It's also pretty triggery if you're sensitive about sexual abuse, but if you can get past that it's worth reading for Hogath's usual lyrical style. With those caveats I consider it worth the price.

A short and magnificently dark romance by Micah Hogarth, centered on a very tragic interpretation of the unicorn myth. I'm typically not a fan of romantic stories, but this is different, both for the depth of the world she shows us and for the very, very tragic ending. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who wants a new take on the legend of the unicorn.
