Sapha Burnell – UsurperKings

“Sapha is like a young Wolfgang Pauli, in every laboratory he went, there was a little explosion.” Cyberpunk/magic realism author and poet Sapha Burnell’s works (Usurper Kings, Son of Abel & Neon Lieben) were dubbed “jaw-droppingly beautiful”, “an insane, diabolical, kick-ass rollercoaster” and “hauntingly beautiful”. Literary critic Ella J said of Neon Lieben, “I never thought a science fiction story could be so beautiful”. Sapha writes on the interlock between mysticism, mythology and science with a pugilist’s eye. The product of Vancouver’s multiculturalism, Sapha steeped in divergent cultures, religious experiences and gender roles, until battling with traditional opinions became a daily war. On hiatus from the written word, she volunteered in West Africa, and returned to Canada with an international perspective. As an editor & literary theorist, Sapha’s work focuses on comparative mythology & the ethics of futurism. On Twitch, Sapha critiques prose twice a week, and writes online once. A member of The Writers Union of Canada, Sapha lives in BC with their spouse and speaks on gender roles, cyberpunk, martial arts, comparative mythology, wine education and religion, when the #hallowesfam isn’t chatting it up on discord or twitch.
