Bio & Credits

 cropped-headshot.jpg

Writer, musician and former editor Brandon L. Rucker who hails from Indiana, USA where the summers are humid and the winters were increasingly unbearable, until recently (thanks El Nino).

As a published writer Rucker is the author of over a dozen short stories, half a dozen poems and numerous articles of non-fiction and journalism.  He writes a rather motley brand of fiction, dipping in and out of a variety of genres as well as sometimes blending them together.  His short fiction and poetry has appeared online at BLINK|INK, LIQUID IMAGINATION and DEAD GUNS PRESS, as well as in small press print anthologies published by DFE QUARTERLY (via PILL HILL PRESS), STATIC MOVEMENT and HOUSE OF HORROR.

As an editor Rucker has had edited short fiction for ZOETROPE: ALL-STORY EXTRA (May – June 2000), STATIC MOVEMENT books imprint (Oct 2010 – Nov 2011, culminating in Local Heroes anthology), and Liquid Imagination online webzine (Oct 2010 – Aug 2013).

Armed with grammar, diction and a strong sense of rhythm and melody, he is at-large and potentially dangerous. Be wary.

    1. Thank you for the kind words and the follow! I will say that there may be true talent involved, but it doesn’t mean a whole lot when you don’t do much with it. I see you’re just getting started. . .DO NOT squander it like I have. Promise?
