Peter Chiykowski lives and schemes in Toronto. He writes Rock, Paper, Cynic, an online comic that's been shared by George Takei, tweeted by Nathan Fillion, and featured on Tor.com, as well as Little Worlds, an online urban fantasy graphic novel that benefits charity.
His poems n' short stories have been published in Imaginarium 2012: Best Canadian Speculative Writing, Best Canadian Poetry in English 2011, The New Quarterly, On Spec, PRISM International, Grain, and a bunch of other magazines and anthologies across North America. He also briefly held the world record for being the youngest living person.

Rock, Paper, Cynic updates Mon/Fri. It's been printed in The SMU Journal, The Dalhousie Gazette, The Watch, and The Cadre and quoted by its readers in reviews, dating profiles, Urban Dictionary definitions, undergrad essays, and (in one case) an anesthetic-induced rant recorded during a surgery.
Little Worlds is collaborative "dreampunk" webcomic project that Peter started to raise money for Free the Children.
Peter invites anyone to print/publish his comics for free, just let him know what you're up to.
Peter has been hitting the keyboard pretty hard these days. In 2010 he did a Bachelor's in English and Creative Writing (and then a Master's in English) and now he's hooked on poetry and storytelling. Here's a list of stuff he's published:
He's currently working on several new short stories and a collection of poems with a novel lurking in the back of his mind.
Peter has a home recording studio where he makes music to release along with his comic. The first volume of music, Some Songs for Some People, can be bought in the Rock, Paper, Cynic Store. The second volume, The Black n' Blues, is currently in progress.
