“When ships to sail the void between the stars have been invented, there will also be men who come forward to sail those ships.” – Johannes Kepler
I’m a geek.
I hold a B.A. in History and an M.A. in Military History, both from Norwich University in Vermont, where I work as an administrator.
I wear a bunch of hats. Currently, I am an Editorial Assistant for Lightspeed Magazine where I write a quarterly book review column, and a columnist for Kirkus Reviews, where I write a bi-weekly feature on the history of Speculative Fiction. I am a 2014 graduate of the Launch Pad Astronomy Workshop.
I’m the editor of the forthcoming Military Science Fiction anthology, War Stories: Modern Military Science Fiction, Apex Books. I’m also writing a book on the history of science fiction tentatively titled The Future Machine: The History of the Writers, Editors and Readers who Built Science Fiction from Jurassic London (coming 2015).
A complete list of what I’ve written can be found on the Writing tab.
I’m represented (nonfiction) by Kelli Christiansen at bibliobibuli Professional Editorial Services.
