Arthur C. (Buck) Dorrance (email@example.com)
Style: Eccentric and eclectic. SF or fantasy as the muse directs.
Interests: Science, cinema, slipstream fiction, history, economics… dabbling in too many things to be good at any of them. I will read most anything, except sports. As is true for all of us, I’m threatened by premature burial under countless bought, yet unread books.
A Brief Bio:
I’m married, with an adult child and a time-share dog. I started out as a child, if not on the streets of Philadelphia (like Bill Cosby), then in one of its suburbs. Got a degree in psychology. After joining the US Navy, I served onboard a submarine and then in the Philippines. Getting out, I used the GI Bill to go through nursing school. My career went from geriatrics, to intensive care, and then anesthesia. Along the way I also picked up an MS in Biology. Now retired.
Idle hands make the devil’s work. I have attended James Gunn’s 2-week workshop twice, then Clarion 2000 in East Lansing, MI, then Odyssey 2009. I’m currently writing an alternate history novel about Mary Shelley, Ben Franklin’s great-grandson, and an American Revolution do-over. Helping Lawrence Schoen with editing at his Paper Golem Press.
