Patrick H. Adkins
Patrick H. Adkins was seduced by the Muse at the tender age of ten and has been in and out of recovery ever since. At different times he has been a bookseller, small press publisher, "slush pile" reader for Galaxy magazine, medical and technical editor and writer, freelance writer, story doctor, ghost writer, editor-in-chief of a multimedia publishing company, and software expert. His published works include Lord of the Crooked Paths, Master of the Fearful Depths, and Sons of the Titans, a highly regarded series of mythological fantasies issued by Ace Books (Berkley-Putnam Publishing Group).
An antiquarian in taste and a futurist by compulsion, he spends inordinate amounts of time exploring the byways of popular literature, especially 19th and early 20th Century writers, playing with his computer, and ruminating upon the implications of 21st Century science and technology. After buying his first computer in 1985, he discovered to his amazement that he not only enjoyed using the device, but was actually quite skilled at it and even capable of light programming. He is fascinated by the prospects of electronic publishing and looks forward to re-collecting his favorite authors (which include Dumas, Poe, Twain, Doyle, Wells, London, Burroughs, Merritt, David H. Keller, Guy Endore, Fredric Brown, Theodore Sturgeon, and Richard Matheson) in that form. His interest in the past extends to history, anthropology, archaeology, and Old Time Radio shows.
