Main Fiction: “Sensory Overload” by Julie Frost
Originally published in Plasma Frequency Magazine.
Julie Frost writes every shade of speculative fiction and lives in Utah with her family (wherein the pets outnumber the people) and a collection of anteaters and Oaxacan carvings, some of which intersect. Her fiction has appeared in Cosmos, Unlikely Story, Plasma Frequency, Stupefying Stories, and many other venues, and has been a Finalist at Writers of the Future and the Hidden Prize for Prose. Her first novel, “Pack Dynamics,” will be released at Salt Lake ComicCon by WordFire Press. She whines about writing, a lot, at http://agilebrit.livejournal.com/
