Victor T. Cypert, polymathematicaster extraordinaire, has scrubbed industrial machinery, worked on an orchard, mastered the art of wrapping burritos, consulted for major label rock bands, written code, taught math, studied magic, lectured in history, met the Loa, and somehow managed to snag an MFA from Seton Hill University along the way. He writes poetry, fiction, and the occasional polemic. When not writing, he is often engaged in historical reenactments of famous alchemical experiments. In addition to his MFA, he holds an MA in liberal studies and an MSc in research psychology. He is a graduate of the Borderlands Press Writers Bootcamp.
