Rivers Solomon writes about life in the margins, where xe is firmly at home. Xer love for science fiction and all things speculative began after reading Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles, where xe encountered the line, "Of course there's no life on Earth! There's too much oxygen!" and understood the power of SFF to challenge the status quo. After graduating with a degree in Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity from Stanford University in California, xe went on to study fiction writing in the much maligned US state of Texas as a fellow at the Michener Center for Writers. Xe currently resides in Cambridge, UK with xer partners, child, and cats. Xer novel, AN UNKINDNESS OF GHOSTS, is currently looking for a publishing home and xe is at work on a second novel.
