Robert Lowell Russell* is a writer and trophy husband (obviously). He is a SFWA member and a member of the Writeshop and Codex writers' groups. He is a former librarian, a former history grad student, a former semi-professional poker player, and is now pursuing nursing degree (say "ah!").

Rob has also just noticed how outdated and lame his website has become and will be modifying it in the near future.

Update: Check out my NEW website (still in progress) at (it redirects to a wordpress account, but it's nice.

His stories have appeared (or will appear) in Orson Scott Card's InterGalactic Medicine Show, Penumbra, Digital Science Fiction, Daily Science Fiction (thrice!), Stupefying Stories (fice? what's the word for five?), and a whole bunch of other places (see complete list on the right side).

*RLR finds it a bit silly to write about himself in the 3rd person.

Torchwood: Miracle Day... WTF happened to a decent show?

I like British sci-fi shows, and I've been a fan of Torchwood.  I was pretty enthusiastic about the new series, Miracle Day, but...  OMG it's awful!  The pacing of the story arc is painfully slow, and today I tried watching the blond CIA woman tip-toe her way around in the latest episode and I finally gave up on it.  Torchwood used to be cool.  WTF happened?


  1. Dude I love Torchwood, but I can't write or direct and feel I could have done better. Capt Jack is like a guest star on his own show. WTF happened?. Series could have be done in 3 eps. Just my thoughts. Yanto is doing back flips in his grave.Anyway thanks for having a place for me to post my thoughts.

  2. Not trying to be rude, you need to change you text from white to another color, just a shade darker. The white in the Ninja background is messing with your last name. And is the Blessing just the Earth or some alien that lives in the Earth a giant worm or WTF?
