Carrie Cuinn is an author, editor, modernist, and geek. Her writing often subverts classic science fiction, blending it with feminism, anti-colonialism, myth, poetry, weird, and more. (Plus, she really likes robots.) Recent publications can be found in Kaaterskill Basin Literary Journal, Luna Station Quarterly, Apex Magazine, and Unlikely Stories.
In her spare time she is works toward a degree in Creative Writing (to go with her other degrees in Fine Arts, and History of Art), listens to music, watches indie films, cooks everything, reads voraciously, and sometimes gets enough sleep. She's online at @CarrieCuinn and at http://carriecuinn.com.
