SF author L. S. King


Who is L. S. King

(aka Loriendil)?




A science fiction fan since she was a wee babe, L.S. King cut her teeth on Twilight Zone and Outer Limits. She cosplayed before it had a name, creating her own alien outfits back when folks didn't even know what a Trekkie was, and writing fanfic on everything from Batman to Dark Shadows to Star Trek to X-Men and Avengers.


When on the planet, this mother and grandmother enjoys gardening, soap making, reading, and online gaming. She also likes All Things Myst, Middle-earth, Looney Tunes, the color purple, and is a Zorro aficionado, which might explain her love of swords and cloaks.




L.S. has worked as a submissions editor and a copy editor on several magazines, authored a column for new writers, and was a founding editor of the online magazine, Ray Gun Revival, now on hiatus.
She does local writing workshops and currently hosts a fiction writing support group on Discord.


She has books published in two series:


The first is the dangerous and sometimes humorous adventures of a space gunslinger and cowboy from a pioneer planet in the space opera Deuces Wild.


The second are science fiction tales with an epic fantasy feel in the The Sword's Edge Chronicles. Also, a novel entitled Unlikely Prophet, which combines dystopian and colonization elements.


Her short stories have been included in two anthologies of the best short stories and poetry from Double-Edged Publishing, and also in Inkd Publishing's Hidden Villains. And various online magazines have published her stories including Deep Magic, The Sword Review, Dragons, Knights & Angels, Digital Dragon Magazine, and Residential Aliens. The fact that several of the publications which have released her stories are now defunct has nothing to do with her. Honest.
