Ikhnaton Skypeople writes experimental work that is too gritty to publish under her own name. She has a conservative job and her public profile is watched closely. She would be much more successful, financially and socially, if she would instead write the boring peer-reviewed publications expected of a fledgling academic like herself. However, she decided she’d rather write what she wants, rather than what they want her to. So she chooses obscurity, to write under an assumed name, to hide her true identity. Her work has also been published in Red Fez.
