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. It's available through all major ebook retailers, or you can buy 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.
