About Rabia Gale

Rabia Gale breaks fairy tales and fuses fantasy and science fiction. She loves to write about battered-but-still-battling heroes, transformation and redemption, and things from outer space. In her spare time, she reads, doodles, eats chocolate, and homeschools her children.

Rabia grew up in hot humid Karachi, Pakistan. She then spent almost a decade in the frozen American Northeast among the trees, mountains, and moose. She now lives in Northern Virginia with her husband and three children.

I'm impressed, you retell and old story and make it new. Good for fans of re-imaged tales and steampunk.

Review by: Dave Burns on Sep. 12, 2012 : star star star star star
Wow! An amazing 'fractured fairy tale' set in a cybernetic, post-apocalyptic world. Rabia Gale's prose is a thing of beauty - her words are precisely chosen and hand woven together, creating a tapestry of literary pure gold. So hard to pick just one example:
"She snorted, and her scorn was like battery acid, dripping through my skin and circuitry and into my bones."
Brilliantly written.
