Robert Roth (he/him) is a working-class queer nerd and author helping to overthrow the capitalist patriarchy one wry comment at a time. Besides writing stories and novels, he’s written hundreds of magazine and news articles, dozens of published film and video scripts, and a four-act play.

He lives in Seattle with his partner, where he enjoys reading and writing science-fiction. Robert counts authors such as N.K. Jemisin, Ann Leckie, Neal Stephenson, Rebecca Roanhorse, and G. Willow Wilson among some of his favorites. As a queer author, he likes to write about worlds where people like him, his friends, and those he cares about get to live and love just like everyone else does.

Excellent, inventive world-building, with a unique, entertaining take on a post-apocalypse setting. Great characterization, including my favorite, a cranky, know-it-all who can't help getting mad at the ignorant folks surrounding her. I especially en ...more
