38. The Idea of Yearning. [Ian Mathers.]

Ian Mathers is a writer and editor living in Toronto with his wife and a very needy cat. His work has appeared in Stylus, the Singles Jukebox, the Village Voice, Dusted, Pop Matters, and elsewhere. In his spare time he looks for weird new beers to try and runs a D&D game for his wife and friends.
