Mitchell Shanklin lives in Seattle, writing stories with magic and/or made-up science. He also writes code, plays video, board and mind games, reads, runs, and has rambling philosophical arguments. He is a proud member of Team Arsenic, The Dreamcrashers, and Write of Passage. He is visibly bisexual.
This Mind and Body Cyborg as a queer figure raises its head in Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone’s 2019 epistolary novel This Is How You Lose the Time War, as two Cyborg bodies shed their previous subjectivities in order to find a queer understanding of one another.
