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Rob has also just noticed how outdated and lame his website has become and will be modifying it in the near future.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

"One Man's Trash" has been accepted by Untied Shoelaces of the Mind

My flash piece, "One Man's Trash," has been accepted by Untied Shoelaces of the Mind. Untied is a market I've attempted to crack many, many times, and I've finally succeeded.

Geoff Porter, the Untied editor, wrote in the acceptance letter:

We really enjoyed it.  Perhaps the best sci-fi we've ever gotten.  One of the best for sure.  We want to publish it in the next issue.

I'm obviously very pleased by this, and I'll post a link when the story goes live.

Lilah is live at Fiction on the Web

Oops. October 25th kind of came and went for me, I've been so busy with my studies, but my story, "Lilah," is now live at Fiction on the Web.
