"A Sister's Weight In Stone" by JY Yang -- published in Apex Magazine issue 72, May 2015.
JY Yang has held seven jobs in four industries in under a decade. The one thing enduring this mess has been her endeavours as a speculative fiction writer. She has had short stories published in markets both Singaporean (Ceriph, Fish Eats Lion, From The Belly Of The Cat) and international (Clarkesworld, Crossed Genres, Strange Horizons). A graduate of the Clarion West workshop, J lives in Singapore in a bubble populated by her imagination and an indeterminate number of succulent plants named Lars. Find J on Twitter at @halleluyang.
