About the Author
Anya Martin was weaned on Friday Night Frights, has always rooted for the monster, and regrets abandoning her earliest career aspiration-digging for dinosaurs. She listens to punk rock with a heavy side of funk and experimental jazz, cooks dangerously hot curries, and hangs with dogs whenever possible. She's also half-Finnish, has an anthropology degree from Smith College, and earns her living as a journalist. Her fiction has appeared in anthologies and magazines including Tales from a Talking Board, Looming Low, Eternal Frankenstein, Cthulhu Fhtagn!, Giallo Fantastique, Cassilda's Song, Borderlands 6, Mantid, Daybreak Magazine and Womanthology: Heroic. She produces The Outer Dark podcast, featuring interviews with contemporary Weird/spec-lit creators, with Scott Nicolay, for This Is Horror.

"In Anya Martin's gorgeous debut collection, the weird and the fantastic live side by side with characters and places at once extraordinary but somehow curiously familiar too. From insects invading a woman's life bit by bit, to a meeting between Bride of Frankenstein actress Elsa Lanchester and the brain of Karl Marx's daughter, these stories will haunt and intrigue you long after the final pages. Beautiful, heartbreaking, and with precisely the right dose of the unsettling, Sleeping With the Monster is an unforgettable foray into the strange that you don't want to miss." - Gwendolyn Kiste, author of The Rust Maidens and Pretty Marys All in a Row
