About Ben Francisco

Ben Francisco is a writer of fictions.  His stories range from magic realism to space opera, and have been known to feature oversexed ghosts, depressed precognitive psychics, and pantheistic vampire aliens who reproduce like moss. Common themes include cultural misunderstandings, family dysfunctions, LGBT experiences, and spiritual searches.  Also, lasers.

Ben’s stories have been published in PodcastleRealms of FantasyDreaming AgainLady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet, ShimmerBest Gay Stories, Wilde Stories, and From Macho to Mariposa: New Gay Latino Fiction.

Ben lives in Manhattan and has devoted much of his copious spare time to working for nonprofits advancing LGBTQ rights, immigrant rights, and racial and gender justice. Since early childhood, he has been obsessed not only with doing good, but with doing good as efficiently and systematically as possible. He alternately attributes this to his Catholic upbringing and having read the words, “With great power comes great responsibility,” in no fewer than 2,500 Spider-Man comic books.
