Simon Gonzalez writes science fiction short stories and little one-liners on this site. His novella, Miners, a cypherpunk biohacking tale set in Texas, is now available on Amazon.

Simon earned a PhD in biological sciences and co-authored a handful of scientific articles, including work on alternative genetic systems. He is currently researching ways to turn DNA, the “blueprint” of cells, into useful technology. Born and raised on the border of South Texas, he now resides in Massachusetts.

You can find him lamenting the end of America on Twitter.


ALIENBUTTS.COM is dedicated to the organisms that disappeared from our history shortly after giving rise to the first DNA-based cells on Earth.

May your true potentials be realized on other, gentler planets.

And may our future interactions be like those of old friends.
