WRITER, fiction and tv


I’m David Anaxagoras and my sci-fi novelette Anything Short of Death is Survivable is now available in Lightspeed Magazine. I created Amazon Studio’s Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street, an award-winning coming-of-age TV show about mysterious frogs, run-amok robots, dangerous rainbows, and the friends who help get us through it all. I also wrote for Glitch Techs, an animated Netflix series about kids who battle video game villains that find their way into the real world

Olive feared she might vomit which would be a really dumb and dangerous thing to do since her mouth was sealed off (along with the rest of her skin) against the vacuum of space. Basically, her insides had nowhere to go. She swallowed hard. Only little kids got space sick and she wasn’t a little kid, she was fourteen. As soon as the hatch had opened and she went rushing out into the empty, Olive’s skin crystalized—just like it was supposed to. 

a shattered universe. an augmented teen . a robot watchdog.

Olive is looking for a way out, and in the broken remains of a derelict warship, she just might have found it. ANYTHING SHORT OF DEATH IS SURVIVABLE is a tale of what we owe ourselves…and what we no longer owe others.
