Main Fiction: “Bitter Remedy” by Krystal Claxton

Originally published in Plasma Frequency Magazine

Tragically born with a miscalibrated sense of humor, Krystal Claxton lived in nine US states before the age of thirteen. The combination of the two has left her with an oscillating accent and a habit of laughing at things that aren’t funny. She currently lives in Georgia with her long-suffering spouse, a dog who thinks she’s a cat, and a number of children that is subject to change.  She enjoys breaking Heinlein’s Rules, getting distracted by Dragon Con, and feverishly researching whichever random topic has just piqued her interest.

Part of her rehabilitation includes serving as nonfiction assistant editor for Escape Artists’ Mothership Zeta Magazine, a quarterly ezine publishing fun and uplifting science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Her villainous exploits have been cataloged in such venues as Devilfish Review, Crossed Genres, Abyss and Apex Magazine and are forthcoming on the Pseudopod Podcast.
