Benjamin Rosenbaum bounces between Basel, Switzerland and Washington, DC. His stories have been nominated for the Hugo, Nebula, BSFA, World Fantasy, Locus, and Sturgeon Awards, and translated into 25 languages. One of them was animated and won Best Animated Short at SXSW in 2010. He has two children, and while they are not quite the children in this story, some of the mixture of love, fierce protectiveness, and sibling resentment is drawn from life.
