We Won’t Be Here Tomorrow and Other Stories (2022) is a collection of my short fiction. Lesbian mermaids, anarchist hackers, antifascist viking ghosts, you name it. Coming September 20, 2022, and let’s be real I’m going to forget to update this page so it will probably say “coming September 20” for years after the book is out.

A Country of Ghosts (2014 and 2021) is an anarchist utopian novella, originally published by Combustion Books, republished by AK Press in 2021.

The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion (2017) and The Barrow Will Send What it May (2018) are two novellas in the Danielle Cain series, which I like to call “punk rock scooby doo.” Published by Tor.com.

We Are Many: Reflections on Movement Strategy from Occupation to Liberation (2012) is an anthology of voices from the Occupy movement, which I co-edited with Kate Khatib and Mike McGuire.

What Lies Beneath the Clock Tower (2011) is an “adventure of your own choosing” book that follows a drunken fop dragged into an anticolonial struggle beneath the streets of France. Originally published by Combustion Books, not easily available as of the time I write this.

Mythmakers & Lawbreakers: Anarchist Writers on Fiction (2009) is a collection of interviews I did with various anarchist fiction writers about what it means to be a storyteller involved in political struggle. Currently out of print because one of the authors turned into a real piece of shit anti-trans asshole and we gotta reprint it.

I’ve spent most of my adult life on the road, but am currently nestled into the Appalachian mountains. Politically, I’m an anarchist: I believe society would be better off without systems of hierarchy and oppression such as the state, capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy, and the like. I’m a trans woman and my preferred pronouns are she/her, but I also believe in the abolition of gendered language and have no problem with people using the singular “they” to refer to me.

I occasionally say things @magpiekilljoy on twitter and I post pictures of my dog on instagram.
