Paul Kemner

I was born sometime after the last Ice Age. In school, I was a space and biology geek, keeping freshwater aquariums, playing in the band, and reading all the SF I could get my hands on. I tend to collect odd hobbies.
I first attended Penguicon 2010, and decided to finally start writing. I co-wrote a weekly serial on Steampunk Empire, which I'm re-serializing on my blog. It's a humorous/deadly tale set in a late 19th-century Egypt, where a few of the old temples are still hanging on, ancient magic is still a powerful force, and hints of an ancient tech begin surfacing.
Bibliotheca Alexandrina published my novella A Wrecking Bar, a Chocolate Bar, and a Ka Offering for NaNeferKaPtah in the anthology Shining Cities (Bibliotheca Alexandrina). I revised it as a self-published project, and I'm working on a spinoff novel, and writing an earth-orbit time travel story. There’s also a post-apocalyptic ancient Egyptian series in the works too.
