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Rob has also just noticed how outdated and lame his website has become and will be modifying it in the near future.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

Two sales: "Operation Round Orange" to the Saturday Evening Post's NFF series and "Floaters" to Fantastic Stories of the Imagination

I'm happy to report that my story, "Operation Round Orange," will be appearing soon (this Friday, 11/28 I think) in the Saturday Evening Post's new New Friday Fiction online series. I'm particularly pleased by this sale since it's the first time I've sold a humorous story outside the speculative fiction markets, plus SEP's circulation, even its online content, probably dwarfs the circulation of all my other story sales combined.

I'll post a link when it goes live.

I'm also happy report a reprint sale to Fantastic Stories of the Imagination. My story, "Floaters," which originally appeared in Digital Science Fiction's Heir Apparent anthology will see new life with Fantastic Stories. "Floaters" was my first full length pro sale and Fantastic Stories will provide the story with a much wider audience. 

I'll post a link to it, too, once it goes live.
