Caitlín R. Kiernan


Atheist transsexual lesbian genre writer Caitlín R. Kiernan started off as a directionless geology student. After graduating she went into paleontology and helped with the discovery of a new type of mosasaur by pinning down its location based on the nanoplankton remnants found in its skeleton. When she grew tired of dusting off dinosaur bones, Kiernan quit and started writing genre fiction full-time. Her novels, comic books, and short stories, which have an impressive list of awards to their name, include: Silk, her first novel, which features copious numbers of spidersThe Drowning Girl, a semi-autobiographical magical realist fictional memoir; and contributions to The Dreaming, a spinoff of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comics. She is also a musician who has played in several grunge bands.

Kiernan’s website is available here; here Livejournal can be found here.

    Don’t ever brag or highlight your disbelief, even in principle, For, as an atheist, it really shouldn’t matter to you, but to those who clutch to and focus on religion, it’s a very big deal, your pointed attack on their faith and beliefs.
    When it comes down to it, after all, nobody knows for sure, you or them, so an acceptance and respect, especially on your part, is ultimately the most important viewpoint of all.
