E.E. King is a painter, performer, writer, and biologist—she’ll do anything that won’t pay the bills, especially if it involves animals. Ray Bradbury calls her stories “marvelously inventive, wildly funny and deeply thought-provoking. I cannot recommend them highly enough.” Her books include Dirk Quigby’s Guide to the Afterlife, Electric Detective, Pandora’s Card Game, The Truth of Fiction and Blood Prism. King has won awards and fellowships for art, writing, and environmental research, most recently the Whodunit 2018 award.
