Avery Cahill knows enough about everything to annoy his friends but not enough about one thing to get a job. Did he get a BS in English because he loves science or because he wanted to say he had a BS in English? Yes. He’s lived under the northern lights where the crystal moon hangs like golden frost on the outré black. He’s watched the Abashiri ice flows carry seals to Hokkaido’s shores. He’s delved the mysteries of ancient Pithecusae and other Mediterranean isles. He’s taught English in Japan, Norwegian in Iowa, and Latin in Florida. His work has appeared in Dog Oil Press, Innsmouth Free Press and Future Lovecraft.
