With everything that has happened in our country recently, the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. is vitally important. I ask that you, dear reader, take a few minutes to read two things: Letter From a Birmingham Jail and the I Have a Dream speech. Even if you’ve read them before, take the time to read them again. King’s words are powerful, and our country needs them right now.
Eileen Maksym studied philosophy at Yale and theology at Boston College, and now uses both to write science fiction. Currently she is an academic nomad, following her astrophysicist husband around the world, two kids in tow. When not writing or kid wrangling, Eileen is a hopeless fangirl. She can be found on Twitter (@eileenmaksym) squeeing over her favorite shows, most of which involve famous detectives, dashing time travelers, and creatures that are never, ever referred to as zombies.
