About

Hi. I’m a writer from Colombo, Sri Lanka and I’ve been publishing short fiction, essays, and occasional poetry since 2013. I’m also a fiction editor at Strange Horizons. The header image above is an 1518 engraving, Allegory of Death and Fame, by Agostino Veneziano.

I’m @_vajra on Twitter—I’ve archived a few of my Twitter threads if you want to see what I get up to—and @vajra@wandering.shop on Mastodon. You can support me on Patreon at patreon.com/vajra.

If you’d like to read a sample of my fiction, you could try “On the Origin of Specie” (Nightmare, 2019), “Heron of Earth” (Clarkesworld, 2018), or “Documentary” (Lightspeed, 2015); there’s a more complete list of publications if you’d like to read more, and below is a navigable covers gallery of some magazines and anthologies I’ve been published in.
