Kit O’Connell lives in Austin, Texas with his pet bandersnatch, Saskia. He is actively working on several projects including a humorous erotic science fiction novel — or maybe it’s epic-length funny futuristic erotica? — with Canadian writer and poet Kiki Christie.
He’s been attending events in the Burning Man community, mostly in the Texas region, since 2001. After a lifetime of being a freak, he became the particular perverse polyamorous weirdo that he is today on an epic shroom trip at that first event. It was on that day that he decided to try to actually enjoy being alive. Overall, he’s succeeded, filling life with as much sex, creativity and oontz-oontz beats as any man deserves; his lovers affectionately call him “satyr.”
Kit is an urban cyclist, and well known for his delicious vegetarian cooking. At any given moment he may be writing, consuming mass quantities of media, using semi-colons, covered in bite marks (or in the process of covering others), dressed in something garish and ridiculous, or naked.
In addition to writing fiction and erotica, Kit is a critic of books, sex toys and other media, a freelance writer, a web-geek, and a professional proofreader. He has been named the Web Content Lead for Burning Flipside 2011.
Kit O’Connell’s short story, “Lifting The Veil” was published March 1 in This Is The Way The World Ends, a collection of apocalyptic erotica from Freaky Fountain Press. ”Lifting the Veil” is a story of sex, experimental drugs, and the last Burning Man ever. You can read an excerpt or buy it here.
His poetry once appeared on cans of gourmet coffee from a now bankrupt “publisher.” Since then it has appeared in Aberrant Dreams and Oysters and Chocolate. His book reviews appear on the SF Site and his sex toy reviews appear right here on this blog. You can find out more about his writing on the Writing page, or follow Kit’s latest updates on twitter.
If Kit seems confused or disoriented, please provide him with a cup of Earl Grey and a writing implement.
