Simon Ings, born in 1965, is a science fiction, cyberpunk and nonfiction writer, as well as arts editor of the magazine »New Scientist«. His subversively stylized, multi-layered and cutting-edge novels involve cyborg extensions, augmented realities and alternate historiographies. He edited the forthcoming anthology »We, Robots« (2020), which compiles one hundred AI-focussed short stories from 1837 until today, and is currently working on a libretto based on historical attempts at human-ape crossbreeding. Ings lives in London.
