Andrea Tang is a speculative fiction writer and international affairs wonk based out of DC. Her prose fiction has previously appeared at Apex Magazine, PodCastle, and a variety of other publications; her poetry has previously appeared in the margins of her high school AP exams, which in her humble opinion, makes her Uncanny Magazine debut a considerable upgrade.
