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Rob has also just noticed how outdated and lame his website has become and will be modifying it in the near future.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

"Ghost Dancing" to appear on Phantasmacore

I've received word that my story, "Ghost Dancing," will appear on Phantasmacore. It's been a good few days for reprints. :-)  I'll post a link when it's live.

[edit] and it's live. Click here for story.

"Gorlack the Destroyer's All You Can Eat Adventure" is now available in the Dark Expanse: Surviving the Collapse anthology.

My story, "Gorlack the Destroyer's All You Can Eat Adventure," is in the Dark Expanse: Surviving the Collapse anthology, now available for download on Amazon. There are some pretty big names included in this anthology, and the story I contributed is one of my all time favorites.


Another "Thirty More Seconds." This time 50% more British.

The Short Humour Site (UK, thus the "-our" in humor) has reprinted my story, "Thirty More Seconds," about a guy masturbating in traffic who accidentally destroys the world.

I wasn't sure if American idioms like "monkey spanking" would work for an non-American audience, so I tried to use British equivalents (drawing from knowledge gleaned from my British TV watching habits) . There's a high chance that I buggered something up, so feel free to point out my errors. There's nothing I hate more than facking up my use of profanity. :-)
