Hi, my name is Rachael Acks and I’m a writer, geologist, and sharp-dressed sir. I’ve had short stories in Strange Horizons, Lightspeed, Daily Science Fiction, Shimmer, and more. I’m an active member of SFWA, the Northern Colorado Writer’s Workshop, and Codex.
I love movies, nerdy things, cats, and writing, and I blog about all this and more depending on my mood. I’ve written film reviews for Mothership Zeta and Strange Horizons, and if you want to support my compulsive and sometimes ridiculous note-taking, I’ve got a Patreon for that. I’m also a host on the Skiffy and Fanty podcast, where I talk about movies and other nerdy scifi and fantasy things.
I’m also a working scientist, and it should be understood that any and all opinions on this website are mine alone and reflect in no way upon my employer.
I live in Houston (where I bicycle, drink tea, and twirl my ever-so-dapper mustache) with my two
furry little bastards cats.
Want quick writing news without having to wade through my blog? I’ve got a mailing list for that.
If you’re curious about the distinctive way I dress, some basic information for you here!
