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Rob has also just noticed how outdated and lame his website has become and will be modifying it in the near future.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

"Here There Be Monsters?" has been accepted by Stupefying Stories, plus a reprint!

I've just learned that Bruce Bethke at Stupefying Stories wants to publish my humorous story, "Here There Be Monsters" in SS's online Showcase. This will be my third sale to Stupefying Stories, and it's cool to know that an editor "gets" my humor. Stupefying Stories has already published my flash piece, "Elves are Douchebags," and "A Day in the Life of an Unpaid Apprentice" is upcoming with one of their future anthologies.


Oops. And I forgot to mention that my story, "Blessed are the Sowers," will be reprinted by Dark Futures.

Listen up! "There's Construction on Your Road to Doom" is now live at Toasted Cake! Plus two more acceptances.

My story, "There's Construction on Your Road to Doom," is now live at Toasted Cake. Tina Connolly does an incredible job reading the story.

Also, I forgot to report that my Twitter length story, "I'm Still Mad." was not only accepted by Trapeze Magazine, it's already up. 140 characters worth of horror!

And just as I was writing this, I learned that Dark Futures Fiction wants to reprint my story, "Blessed are the Sowers."

It's turning out to be a pretty damn good Monday.
