Beth Powers


Beth Powers writes science fiction and fantasy stories. Her work has appeared in Shelter of Daylight, Plasma Frequency, Outposts of Beyond, and Trysts of Fate, and her story “Nothing Altered” was voted into Plasma Frequency‘s Year One Anthology as the Reader’s Choice for Issue #4. When she’s not writing, Powers studies long, rambling novels from nineteenth-century America in an effort to add a PhD to her collection of degrees. She divides her spare time between reading science fiction and fantasy, practicing Tang Soo Do, and knitting an odd assortment of scarves. Powers lives in Ohio with her cats, Murphy and Roscoe, who, like most cats, tend to walk across keyboards, steal pens, and look absolutely adorable—especially when they are getting into trouble.
