Aliens: The Truth is Coming will be published tomorrow and these posts will introduce you to the authors who’s stories feature in the anthology. Next up, we have Leslie J Anderson, and her tale, “The Zoo of Dark Creatures“.
“The Zoo of Dark Creatures” is a tale which explores what captivity and empathy can mean, not only to the captors, but to the those being held against their will.
Leslie J. Anderson’s writing has appeared in Asimov’s, Strange Horizons, Apex, Pseudopod, and Daily Science Fiction to name a few. She has two books of writing prompts, Inklings and 100 Prompts for Science Fiction Writers from Sterling Publishing.
Her work has been nominated for a Pushcart and a Rhysling Award. Her collection of poetry, An Inheritance of Stone, was nominated for an Elgin Award.
She lives in Ohio with her husband and two small dogs, and is fairly certain the neighbourhood children think she is a witch.
