This new haiga by Marie Vibbert (she took the picture herself) was inspired by seeing this spaceship-style office building plonked in the middle of a cracked car park. Besides selling twenty-odd short stories, a dozen poems and a few comics, Marie Vibbert has been a medieval (SCA) squire, ridden 17% of the roller coasters in the United States and has played O-line and D-line for the Cleveland Fusion women’s tackle football team.
