Mari Ness

Mari Ness. Profile of middle-aged blond woman, mostly turned away from the camera, in front of green leaves and a bit of sky.

Other work by Mari Ness appears in Lightspeed, Nightmare,, Clarkesworld, Uncanny, Nature Futures, Diabolical Plots, Reckoning, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, and previous issues of Fantasy. A tiny collection of tiny fairy tales, Dancing in Silver Lands, was the 2021 Outwrite Short Fiction Chapbook winner, and a tiny short story, “Verisya,” was a finalist for the 2023 Canopus Award. She lives in central Florida, where she is perhaps too easily distracted by alligators, birds, and two magnificent cats. For more, visit her infrequently updated blog at
