DE Bios: Gregory R. Hyde

Gregory's short fiction has appeared in Midnight Graffiti, TOR's Christmas Magic anthology, and the High Fantastic anthology. He's been a finalist in the Writer's of the Future contest and listed twice as honorable mention in St. Martin's Year's Best Fantasy and Horror anthology.

His first short story collection, A Pound of Ezra and Other Units of Gothic Measure, was released by CPAOD Books, in both standard and special editions, in January 2001.

Greg's first completed novel, Anarchy Alley, is in search of an agent. Meanwhile, he pecks away at two others: Second Creek Bridge (a rural Midwestern mainstream derived from his childhood), and Wearing the blueDog (A Dark City meets Bellona slipstream derived from a dream that ended by telling him what to name the story).

A mental health professional for over two decades, he can never remember what happened at work long enough to incorporate any of it into his writing. He survived mid-life crisis by earning a Masters degree in Language and Communication, only to have reinforced the axiom that a Liberal Arts degree (like a degree in psychology) has limited market value.

As a child, he wanted to be a park ranger, lawyer, and an astronaut. As an adult, he doesn't care to camp, has realized most lawyers are professional psychopaths, and has learned that any measure of centrifugal force makes him vomit.

As a mid-lifer, he only hopes to be able to save enough money to retire before he expires.
