Elf M. Sternberg (born May 7, 1966) is a writer located in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. His best known connection with Furry fandom is a series of short stories, The Journal Entries of Kennet R'yal Shardik, et. al., and Related Tales. The first of these, "The Kittenin'", was published in October 1990; the most recent, "Sterlings: The Strange, Perverted Zia Tau", in September 2007. As of August 25, 2008, there are 325 stories totaling over 1.4 million words.
In his non-fiction writings, Sternberg has indicated that he is bisexual with an interest in BDSM. The Journal Entries go further, exploring a wide variety of sexual topics.
In addition to the Journal Entries, Sternberg has also written a takeoff on Larry Niven's Man-Kzin Wars universe. The Kzinti males are generally aggressive and show a psychology not dissimilar to that of the Spartan warriors. Kzinti females, however, are non-sentient, perhaps as intelligent as an Earth dog. Sternberg extrapolates from human history: when women were not expected to be intelligent or educated, men frequently turned to other men for romance, using women for childbearing. Sternberg posits a similar turn among the Kzinti, with a humorous twist.
