Thanks so much for coming by! I write weird fiction, fantasy, and literary fiction, with stories appearing in magazines like Strange Horizons, Crossed Genres, Interzone, and elsewhere. Some recent high points for me have included being a Pushcart nominee and longlisted for the Tiptree Award, being part of the wonderful Long Hidden anthology, and having a story selected for Year's Best Weird Fiction Volume 3. (Eek!) My first collection, Vacui Magia, won the 2nd Annual North Street Book Prize and is a finalist for the World Fantasy Award. It's available through all major book retailers in print and electronic versions, or you can buy the ebook direct via Gumroad. http://traversingz.com/book/vacui-magia/

I have a thing for women in threes, unusual physiologies, sewing, cats, the 18th century, and the supernatural. A complete list of stories is available on my website, where you can sign up for my newsletter.

I blue moon tweet as @ls_johnson. I tumbl as lsjohnson.tumblr.com. I occasionally appear on FB with an irritating lowercase s. Everything else is at the website below.
