Megatron Braineater is the pseudonym of Finnish science-fiction author Maria Candia. In her four-volume »psychedelic space opera« »Kapiteeni Shiva« (tr: Captain Shiva) she, among other things, makes use of what the genre has to offer in order to play around with gender issues and the classic understanding of sex-based roles and our understanding of gender. How the series came about is also quite unorthodox. The books were published by the small record label Flamongo. The artist sometimes also performs as a DJ.
