Picture of an open mic that takes place on a disk in outer space, with a dragon reading a story into a microphone in front of a vampire, alien humanoids, and a little black cat on the dragon's tail. The scene is lit by a flying saucer overhead and two flying saucers closer to the center. The text in the center reads 'Two Hour Transport Anthology 2022, Edited by Nicole Bade, Keyan Bowes, Elly Bangs, and Ramona Ridgewell'
