"Bridging" is roughly 200 words.

Shweta Narayan has lived in six countries on three continents, and done rather a lot of bridging in the process. Her fiction and poetry tend to do the same, but this is the first time she's really poked at it so directly. Shweta's work has appeared in Strange Horizons, Goblin Fruit, and the Beastly Bride anthology. She was the Octavia Butler Memorial Scholarship recipient at the Clarion workshop in 2007. She can be found on the web at
