Victoria Zelvin


Victoria Zelvin is a writer living and working in Washington D.C. Her primary genre is that grey area of speculative fiction between science fiction and fantasy. She has more books than square footage in her apartment and lives with two mostly patient cats who have taken over her social media — Leela (one eye, named for her favorite cyclops) and Pisco (two eyes, looks like a shadow).
You can find her elsewhere on the internet on:
