Phenderson Djéli Clark resides in Washington DC, where he writes speculative fiction during his spare time—when he is not wrestling an overly ripe dissertation into submission. His stories have appeared in Daily Science Fiction, Every Day Fiction, Hogglepot, Heroic Fantasy Quarterly and in the print anthologies Griots: A Sword and Soul Anthology, and Griots II: Sisters of the Spear, co-edited by Charles Saunders and Milton Davis.
