About the Author

Max E. Keele

Max E. Keele writes odd little fictions from his gnomehole somewhere deep in the rain forests of America's Great Northwest. His short stories have been published in such peculiar diverse places as Planet Magazine, Fantastic Metropolis, Fiction International, Science Fiction and Fantasy World and the occasional restroom stall. Keele's work experiments with language and literary forms, from science fiction to fantasy to modern contemporary to experimental, but never strays far from the surreal. His first novel, SOL (Naraka Press, 2012), was nearly 40 years in the making. Much of it derived from a series of chemically-enhanced hitchhiking adventures undertaken in the 1970's—proving that even a life lived beyond the bounds of reality is NEVER quite as strange as fiction.
