Toronto author and editor L.X. Beckett frittered their misbegotten youth working as an actor and theater technician in Southern Alberta before deciding to make a shift into writing science fiction. Their first novella, Freezing Rain, a Chance of Falling, appeared in the July/August issue of the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction in 2018, and takes place in the same universe as their 2019 novel Gamechanger. Lex identifies as feminist, lesbian, genderqueer, married, and Slytherin. They are on Twitter as LXBeckett and have a web site, the Lexicon, at http://lxbeckett.com/.
L. X. is a contributing author to the House of Zolo’s Journal of Speculative Literature – Volume 1 with the poem “Starring you in the Role of the Fourth Rider.”
