KJ Kabza began selling short fiction in 2002, while earning his B.A. in Creative Writing from Antioch College. Since then, he has sold over 70 stories to places such as Tor.com, Motherboard, Nature, F&SF, Strange Horizons, and more. His work has been called, "A fresh new voice in the genre" (Booklist) and "Bursting with both ideas and emotion" (RT Book Reviews). His debut print collection, THE RAMSHEAD ALGORITHM AND OTHER STORIES, released in January 2018 from Pink Narcissus Press.
KJ lives in sunny Tucson, by way of many other American towns too numerous to name. He is not great at hiking, running, and weight lifting, but he enjoys all of these activities and does them regularly anyway. He shares a home with one husband, zero pets, and a number of trees that he is determined to sustain.
What’s the preferred orthography of your first name?
"KJ" and not "K. J." However, a lifetime of listening to mutilations of my last name ("Kazba? Kibbiz? Kabaz? Kabaza? Kadla? Kazaa? Kizba? Kazaba? Kabzaa?") has prepared me for the inevitability of people doing it otherwise, sometimes.
