Bio: Aleksandr Voinov is an emigrant German author living near London where he makes his living as a financial journalist, freelance editor and creative writing teacher. At 34 years of age, he has written about 13 novels and commercially published five with German publishers, plus a number of short stories and poems (even though he still didn't know how that happened). After many years writing German-language horror, science fiction, cyberpunk and science fiction, Aleksandr is now writing historical and contemporary fiction in English. He publishes non-commercial and fanwork as "Vashtan". Intellectually, Aleksandr is drawn to the dark side of human nature and history. As a trained historian, he is fascinated by wars, religion and the conflict between the individual and society (as shown in "Test of Faith", his eXcessica release). Aleksandr's characters are often scarred lonely souls at conflict with their environment and pitted against odds that make or break them. Aleksandr has just barely enough time to take care of a Chinese elm bonsai standing on his desk, goes weight-lifting, and confuses opponents as a left-hander in foil fencing. His interests at the moment include professional chess players, international espionage, tailored suits, and fine Turkish rugs. Aleksandr's style has been called "dynamic to the point of breathlessness", "dark to the point of fatalism" and "disturbingly poetic" by publishers and literary agents; however, recently, he has managed to keep some of his main characters alive and most are even getting a HEA or at least HFN ending. His first short story, "Deliverance" was published in the "Forbidden Love" anthology by Noble Romance Publishing in September 2009. Another story, "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" was contracted by MLR Press for an upcoming anthology.
