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Rob has also just noticed how outdated and lame his website has become and will be modifying it in the near future.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

Tangent Online reviews "The Flittiest Catch." (another good one)

Here's a link to the full review of the issue.

Reviewer, Michelle Ristuccia, writes:

"The Flittiest Catch" by Robert Lowell Russell begins with an interview with a captain on a very unusual fishing boat. As he is explaining the dangers of the job, the interview is interrupted by excitement on the deck. The title and setup are a parody of reality TV shows like “The Deadliest Catch.” This flash piece is a lot of fun and almost everything about it is a spoiler due to its length. Let's just say that the illustration shows an old guy with a long beard suspended from a balloon under the fishing blimp. And just in case you were trying to take it seriously, the story even ends on a pun.
