About

Hi. I’m a writer from Colombo, Sri Lanka and I’ve been publishing short fiction and occasional poetry since 2013. I’m also a fiction editor at Strange Horizons.

I’m @_vajra on Twitter (I’ve archived a few of my Twitter threads) 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), “When Leopard’s-Bane Came to the Door of Third Heaven” (Liminal Stories, 2018), “Heron of Earth” (Clarkesworld, 2018), “Applied Cenotaphics in the Long, Long Longitudes” (Strange Horizons, 2016), “Documentary” (Lightspeed, 2015), and/or “On Being Undone by a Light Breeze” (Lackington’s, 2014).

There’s a more complete list of publications if you’d like to read more, and below is a covers gallery of some magazines and anthologies I’ve been published in:
