Bio: Before becoming a writer of fiction, Steven Fisher spent 20 years as a trainer in corporate America which accounts for his lack of sanity. At various times, he's also been a teacher of the hearing-impaired, a military newswriter, a columnist, and is now a cartoonist as well as a writer. His cartoons and humor can be found at http://www.fine-toon.com. The first part of his fantasy series, "The Merryvale Saga" was featured in the Canadian horse magazine "Nuzzle". He's currently editing the first draft of a science fiction novel in which his hero (a U.S. Army Ranger) wakes up several centuries from the present and proceeds to teach the future the meaning of the word "tough." He's also at work on the first draft of a thriller called "Slow Crime on Towboat Time".

These stories are uncollected in three ways. First they're uncollected in the sense there's no unifying theme, form or genre to hold them together as is today's standard in short fiction volumes. Second, Fisher's imagination works in an uncollected manner; whatever pops into his head, that's what he writes about, whether it be a mainstream, science fiction, fantasy or mystery story. So sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!
