Margaret Killjoy, aka Magpie, is an itinerant author and editor.
As an editor he is the founder of SteamPunk Magazine, the editor of Mythmakers and Lawbreakers: Anarchist Writers on Fiction, the co-editor of We Are Many: Reflections on Movement Strategy from Occupation to Liberation and other titles.
He is the author of two books: A Country of Ghosts, is set in an alternate nineteenth-century-like world. The protagonist is a journalist covering an empire's war upon a peaceful egalitarian society. The empire is after coal and iron, the people they're attacking are defending a utopian way of life.
What Lies Beneath the Clock Tower is a steampunk "choose your own adventure" type book for adults. In it, an impoverished English dandy in Paris discovers an underworld of goblins and their gnome oppressors. What he does about this is for you to decide.
Join Magpie on the Greyshade Estate, an urban homestead in East San Diego. We’ll have a potluck, vegan/vegetarian dishes encouraged, and gather in the living room, or the fire pit in the yard depending, for a chat with the hardest working “bearded lady” in the intersection anarchism and speculative fiction. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for directions.
