Benjamin C. Kinney is a SFF writer, neuroscientist, and two-time Hugo Award finalist as Assistant Editor of the science fiction podcast magazine Escape Pod. Despite his frozen New England heart, he lives in St. Louis with three cats and his ex-Martian wife. He no longer creates cyborg monkeys, after too many nights delivering them Prozac. His short stories have been published in Analog, Strange Horizons, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, and elsewhere; his nonfiction has appeared in Clarkesworld,, and via his once-regular #NeuroThursday feature. He swears this is all true, even the monkeys and the Martians.
