Kawika2017Kawika Guillermo writes stories of travel, speculation, memoir, and whatever else he can sneak into “The Literary.” His work has appeared in journals like The Cimarron ReviewFeminist 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, Hong Kong, and currently resides in Vancouver, Canada.

Kawika Guillermo is the Hawaiian/Filipino name for the much more mundane, mixed race (and mixed up) academic, Christopher B. Patterson, who spends his days patronizing big chain coffee-shops to pen neatly assembled tracts on literature, creativity, and video games. He’s authored the academic books Transitive Cultures: Anglophone Literature of the Transpacific, and Open World Empire: Race, Erotics, and the Global Rise of Video Games.
