Author Information

Real name: Michael Merriam
Bio: Speculative Fiction Writer. Poet. Freelance Editor. Legally Blind. Grandfather. Bass Guitarist. Fire Dancer. I once wrote H/G fanfic under the pen name Dolenbyd. In 2003, after being laid off and declared legally blind, I began writing again, rekindling a passion I had set aside nearly two decades earlier. I have sold over fifty pieces short fiction to several magazines and anthologies, including: Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine, Fictitious Force, and Ruins: Terra. I received an Honorable Mention in The Years Best Fantasy and Horror 2008, was nominated for the James B. Baker Award, and am a two-time semi-finalist in the L.

I live in Hopkins, MN with my wife and an ordained cat.
