Andrew Dykstal lives in Arlington, Virginia, where he writes across all manner of speculative genres. In 2003, long before the associated meme, he took an arrow to the knee, which was about as much fun as it sounds. His fiction has appeared in Daily Science Fiction, and his novelette “Thanatos Drive” won the 35th Writers of the Future contest. This is his first publication in Beneath Ceaseless Skies.
