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Rob has also just noticed how outdated and lame his website has become and will be modifying it in the near future.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

I'm in Penumbra's "spotlight"

Penumbra is doing follow up interviews with some of its past authors and I just noticed that my own "spotlight" popped up recently. It offers a bit of insight about my writing process and what I've been up to lately.

"Twenty Parsecs East of the Earth Bypass, Closed on Sundays" will appear in Fireside Magazine.

Now that the cone of silence has been lifted, I can announce that my humorous, flash length story, "Twenty Parsecs East of the Earth Bypass, Closed on Sundays," will appear in Fireside Magazine. This is my ninth pro sale and twenty-eighth sale overall. Approaching big round numbers is cool.
