Kawika Guillermo’s fiction runs the gamut from speculative fiction to travel fiction and memoir. His work has appeared in journals like The Cimarron Review, Feminist Studies, Drunken Boat, Tayo, and The Hawai’i Pacific Review, as well as in anthologies such as Amok: Asia Pacific Speculative Fiction and Mothership: Tales from Afrofuturism and Beyond. He writes blogs for Anomaly (formerly Drunken Boat) and decomP Magazine, where he serves as the Prose Editor. He has lived in Portland, Las Vegas, Seattle, Gimhae South Korea, Nanjing China, and currently resides in Hong Kong.
Kawika Guillermo is the Hawaiian/Filipino name for the much more mundane, mixed race (and mixed up) professor, Christopher B. Patterson, who spends his day patronizing big chain coffee-shops where he pens unreadable tracts on literature and video games. His work has appeared in American Quarterly, Games and Culture, M.E.L.U.S. (Multi-Ethnic Literature of the United States) and in several anthologies.
