Kenneth S. Toglia is a writer of Neo-Victorian and Edwardian speculative fiction. He lives in New York City. Perhaps best known as a community organizer, he studied Anthropology at the City College of New York and social activism at the University of the Streets on Tompkins Square. One of the central figures in the Lower East Side’s squatting movement, an underground history perhaps best documented in Clayton Patterson’s Resistance, Mr Toglia did a year in jail for misdemeanor incitement to riot in 1992, the first activist in New York City to do so since Emma Goldman in 1893. He is also considered one of the instigators of the modern medical marijuana movement. He speaks fluent Spanish and enjoys coffee.
