Aardwyrm's Nest: The Works of Malda Marlys

Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, and the Inscrutable: Short Fiction and Beyond

Home | Malda Marlys: Author: Welcome


Malda Marlys teaches science just outside Chicago and writes the sort of speculative fiction that requires too many qualifiers for the normal flow of conversation. Fortunately the SFFH umbrella is wide (and kind of spooky and full of brass fittings and snakes). An out-of-practice black belt, mediocre birdwatcher, and terrible knitter, ey spends most of eir time being bullied by disreputable housepets and adding to a monumental TBR pile.
