Author of Cortez on Jupiter, High Aztech, Smoking Mirror Blues, “The Frankenstein Penis,” and other acts of creative outrage. He was born in East L.A. back in the Atomic Age. He has a bad habit of creating “art”—even though he isn’t really sure what that is. He is married to Emily Devenport and all of her pseudonyms—they live in Arizona, and are inspired by the strange beauty and political turmoil. He is living proof that Chicano is a science fiction state of being. He blogs at mondoernesto.com and does a biweekly Chicanonautica column for La Bloga.
