Kat Cataclysm is quite a character: absurdist short fiction writer, recovering slam poet, wannabe stand-up comedian, and the not-so-pure invention of Julia Serano. In other words, as the French would say, she is a nom de plume. Except that the French don’t say “nom de plume,” they say “nom de guerre.” Which literally means “war name.” Although Kat has never fought in any wars. Nor would she want to.
Anyway, Ms. Cataclysm writes humorous digressions about the writing process, physical maladies, so-called temporal paradoxes, bisexuality, anthropomorphism, armchair linguistics, ethical non-monogamy, lucid dreaming, and shopping carts.
Kat is currently working on her first book, tentatively titled 99 Erics. It is a faux novel about the protagonist’s experiences writing a book about her supposed experiences dating ninety-nine different guys named Eric. It is more surreal than slutty. Not that there is anything wrong with slutty.
