Katlina Sommerberg

Speculative and Science Fiction Writer

Sommerberg writes speculative fiction with a satirical lens on modern society and where humanity's heading.

Nobody ever said speculative fiction couldn't include cannibalism and weird science. Sommerberg's particular blend of science and horror could only spring from the mind of a Doomed Zoomer.
