About Me and Acknowledgements

The Short, Hopefully Funny Bio

Stephen Geigen-Miller writes comics, prose and free-associative paragraphs that seemed to make some sort of sense at the time. His geekdoms are many and long-standing, and include science fiction and fantasy, comics, tabletop role-playing games, and endearingly bad kaiju movies.

Stephen co-created and co-wrote the science fiction comic series Xeno’s Arrow with writer/artist Greg Beettam. He co-created and wrote the trope-tacular urban fantasy webcomic Cold Iron Badge with artist Patrick Heinicke. He is a regular contributor to the Skiffy & Fanty website, where he writes about science fiction and fantasy comics and graphic novels.

Stephen lives in Toronto, works at the University of Toronto, and has two children. He writes in the bits and pieces of time in between everything else.

How The Heck Do I Pronounce Stephen Geigen-Miller?!

Stephen is pronounced pretty much like Steven, and I won’t be bothered if you say it like that. Despite the spelling, it’s not pronounced with an “f” sound!

Geigen is pronounced like Geiger counter, so the first syllable sounds like “guy” not “gi” or “gee”, and the second syllable has the same kind of hard “g” sound.

Miller is just the standard English word and name.

My Pronouns

Acknowledgement of Traditional Territory 

I would like to acknowledge that Toronto, and the land it now occupies, where I live and work, has been a site of human activity for 15,000 years. This land is the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. The territory was the subject of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and Confederacy of the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. This territory is also covered by the Upper Canada Treaties. Today, the meeting place of Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island. I am grateful to have the opportunity to live and work in the community of Toronto, on this territory.
