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Rob has also just noticed how outdated and lame his website has become and will be modifying it in the near future.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

"Gorlack the Destroyer's All You Can Eat Adventure" sells to Dark Expanse, plus two reprints accepted!

My humorous story, "Gorlack the Destroyer's All You Can Eat Adventure," has sold to the people at Dark Expanse.  I'm not sure how my story will be inserted into the game, but when I get a direct link or more information, I'll be sure to post it.

 This story, in addition to being a favorite of mine, is also the twentieth original story I've sold. Yay for hitting a personal milestone.

In another milestone, reprints #9 and #10 have been accepted.

"Lilah," which originally appeared in Loconeal's Loco-thology, will now be available to a broader audience on October 25th at Fiction on the Web

"Lilah" is a bit different than what I normally write and is not humorous, but I think it's a powerful story and is one of my oldest published stories.

In other news, my story "Mikey Frick Finds a Flower," which originally appeared with Kazka Press will be reprinted by the folks at The Story Shack. What's extra cool about this is that there will be an original illustration drawn up for the story. I can't wait to see how it turns out,and I'll post a link to Mikey and to Lilah when both go live.
