The anthology Pioneers & Pathfinders just came out, featuring speculative fiction about exploration and frontiers, including my story “Venom in the Cloud Forest.” This tale first showed up in Myriad Lands Vol. 2: Beyond the Edge, and once again, with Pioneers & Pathfinders, I’m floored by the diverse settings of all the accompanying stories.
I felt like celebrating this publication with a sweet treat. Luckily my middle sister had told me about a local chocolatier, Cloudforest, that sources their cacao from none other than Ecuador—and has the most fitting name. Perfect.
