Kent McDaniel lives in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood, where he spends a lot of time playing music, writing prose, and walking around. He grew up down in the Ohio River Valley, but likes Chicago – except for the winters and the traffic. The music and the pizza are great. Sometimes the sports teams are okay, too. (Go Bulls!)
The prologue for Jimmy Stu Lives! appeared in the January 2011 issue of Rambunctious Review as a short story. Kent’s short stories have also appeared in Downstate Story, Chaffin Journal, Palo Alto Review, Iconoclast, Allegory, M-Brane SF, and Wild Violet. He publishes the zine Dumbfounding Stories for Southern Fandom Press Alliance, a venerable bastion of southern science-fiction fandom.
