I received a B.A. in English from Witternberg University, a M.A. in English from UMass-Boston, a M.A. in Science Fiction Studies from University of Liverpool, and a Ph.D. in English from Michigan State University. I'm a Professor of English at WSU-Lake Campus, where he has taught since 2006.

In addition to hundreds of stories and essays, I have published nearly 20 books of fiction and criticism. I also serve as reviews editor for the academic journal Extrapolation, managing editor of Guide Dog Books, and editor-in-chief of Anti-Oedipus Press.

Here is my curriculum vitae.

I can be found online at my official website, blog, Facebook and Twitter. There is also a website dedicated to my novel The Kyoto Man. Primarily I use social networking to promote my books, my publishers and other authors, artists and academics that I know, work with, and/or admire.


I will be on sabbatical during the Spring 2015 semester writing a book on British science fiction author J.G. Ballard for the University of Illinois Press's Modern Masters of Science Fiction Series. I look forward to getting back to teaching this summer! My courses will include online offerings of ENG 2050: African American Literature, ENG 3830: Introduction to Fiction Writing, and ENG 3000: Business Writing. In the meantime, I hope everybody has a productive and enjoyable semester.
