I am not the contents of my wallet. I am not a beautiful and unique snowflake. And I seem to be having tremendous difficulty with my lifestyle.
I'm a Montreal-based science fiction writer, illustrator, comic artist, reviewer, and editor. Straight, male, currently single, and theoretically poly. Also an atheist, a skeptic, and generally rational most of the time.
I was decanted in London, Ontario, but eventually escaped to Montreal to get a Creative Writing Degree at Concordia University. I've been in a few extremely strange alternative bands, as a singer and occasional percussionist and keyboardist. I've also been involved in zine publishing, as a founder and contributer to the underground comics zine Mind Theatre, and editor/publisher of the speculative literature zine, Edge Detector. If you are a role-playing gamer you might have seen my illustrations in the GURPS: Traveller books from Steve Jackson Games. If you're a science fiction reader, you may have seen my short stories in Interzone magazine in the early 1990's, or in the Canadian spec fic anthologies Years Best SF #10, ArrowDreams, IslandDreams, and Northern Stars. With David Hartwell, I co-edited the Canadian SF anthologies Northern Stars and Northern Suns, published by Tor Books.
Order my 2011 short story collection Burning Days from Nanopress! It includes my previously unpublished SF/horror story "Flowers of Avalon."
In the future, I'd like to travel more, write more, draw more comics, expand into new areas of illustration, get a new band together, make some videos, and slow the rotation of the Earth to create a 48-hour day...
