Andrea Monticue, author of Memory and Metaphor (2018), Two Participants (2019), and innumerable unpublished stories, lives in rural Oregon with her wife and their dog, Izzy. She spent many years working as an aviation technician, and thinks this qualifies her to write about space ships. She’s currently a senior at Oregon State University majoring in German, because why not? This will be her second trip through a University. The first time was with a major in something totally frivolous - Physics - at the University of California at Santa Cruz back in the 1970s. Andrea believes in science, the impending climate catastrophe, the germ theory of disease, that Black lives matter, trans rights are human rights, and that caffeine is the most perfect molecule in the universe, it being directly responsible for ending of the Dark Ages and starting the Age of Enlightenment.
