Full Name: Octavia Jane Cade
Occupation: scientist, writer


Octavia Cade is a speculative fiction author from New Zealand. She has a PhD in science communication, and a particular interest in science history and marine studies. She's most recently been researching the reproductive strategies of Zostera muelleri seagrass, and when she's not thinking about science, she's thinking about horror.

She's had more than 30 short stories published, in venues which include Clarkesworld, Asimov's, and Apex Magazine, a number of novellas, and a poetry collection on the periodic table entitled Chemical Letters. Her work has been nominated for BSFA and Elgin awards, and has won three Sir Julius Vogel Awards: twice for Best Novella, and once for Best Fan Writing, for a series of columns on food and horror. She's also had some academic papers on science fiction and horror published, and she writes reviews on a semi-regular basis for Strange Horizons.

She does a lot of tramping (that's Kiwi for "hiking"), and most of the time she manages not to injure herself. Her dream is to one day complete Te Araroa, a walking trail that goes the entire length of New Zealand.
