Welcome to Loridian’s Laboratory, Home of Author Michael Kilman
My name is Michael Kilman and I am an anthropologist, filmmaker, artist, writer, and musician. In 2014 I graduated with an M.S. in Anthropology at Portland State University. While there I focused on topics like globalization, sustainable development, and media systems. I have also spent a sizable portion of my career working with various Native American tribes in the American Southwest. I am also the host of the YouTube Series, Anthropology in 10 or Less
My non fiction book Build Better Worlds: An Introduction to Anthropology for Game Designers, Fiction Writers, and Filmmakers is out November 2020.
I am also a fiction writer. My current work in progress is the Chronicles of the Great Migration, a Sci-Fi Series about giant walking cities and a war between telepaths in a far future earth. The first book Mimi of the Nowhere explores the life of Mimi, a homeless telepath who always thought she was the only one of her kind. I am currently writing book 5 in the series, The Children of AEIS.
