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Rob has also just noticed how outdated and lame his website has become and will be modifying it in the near future.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

A positive review for Digital Science Fiction's Heir Apparent anthology with a blurb about "Floaters"

Dwayne Russell (no relation) writes a nice review of Digital Science Fiction's Heir Apparent anthology and includes a brief blurb about my story, "Floaters." 
Of course, there’s also something to be said for stories that simply want to drop you into the action and let you follow along.  Heir Apparent starts with one of these, “Floaters,” in which a security agent is sent on an expedition to bring back the body of an old comrade.  There’s only one problem:  the body’s identity has been forged.
There are also good reviews of the anthology on Amazon, though my story isn't specifically mentioned.

I'm going to count this as my first positive review. Diabolical Plots reviewed my Daily Science Fiction story, "Blessed are the Sowers," but they gave me a shitty review and I hate them. I had a guy call "Blessed..." "hammy" on Daily SF's FB page. Maybe that's my first positive review. How'd he know I liked ham so much?
