My Beautiful Machines!

I'm Sapha Burnell, a speculative fiction author, poet and activist from Vancouver, Canada. A member of The Writers’ Union of Canada, who is currently serving on the National Council, I, like many authors in Canada, need to make a living. You're here to keep me writing. Thank you for helping me expand the Judge of Mystics Series, joining Lieben and New Boy in their sci-fi adventures and kicking back with gender-bending, cosmological poetry. 

You’re building a fantastic universe by feeding my coffee & life fund. You have the chance to co-create magic realism & science fiction, that makes you wild, confronts you, and makes you laugh.
The rewards? Enjoy weekly serial updates to the Judge of Mystics series, and poetry. Take a first look at the novels, cover art, graphic novels on the go. Kick back in our Beautiful Machines Discord server, with monthly video hangouts and exclusive content. Get access to downloads & paperbacks and the satisfaction of skipping the line at book signings and VIP events. These are your stories, too. Thank you to every one of you for giving me the opportunity to keep writing.  

Judge of Mystics: A universe of magic, where global myths tangle with conflict and reconciliation, mitigated by Lutheran Priest Caleb Mauthisen, his daughter Karisma Calebdottir, his best friend Finnegan the Leprechaun, a surly Kasa-obake and the sons of Thor.

The Lieben Cycle: A universe of science fiction, where a grieving android builds a son to become the first biological machine, as politicians and generals battle to use him to burn the world down.

Usurper Kings: A cosmos of poetry that throws gender on its’ head, revelling in toppling usurper kings and those who enthroned them.

THANK YOU. You are both wealthy & willing to patronize a starving speculative fiction author. I'm astounded. This is insane to the membrane and I'm in the stratosphere. We're in business of making amazing stories together, and I value your contribution & your ever present eye. 

You get monthly content specially designed for you, as well as everything the others see. You're my dream maker, burc'ya (friend).
