From Queen of Swords Press, you can find their steampunk novellas. They’ve had short fiction in Tor.com, Strange Horizons, Gignotosaurus, Daily Science Fiction, Lightspeed, and more, and written movie reviews for Strange Horizons and Mothership Zeta. They’ve also written several episodes of Six to Start’s Superhero Workout game and races for their RaceLink project. Alex lives in Denver (where they bicycle, drink tea, and twirl their ever-so-dapper mustache) with their two furry little bastards.
