Melvin Perry (1945 -- )Toiled for many years in the bowels of the finance industry as a minion of EMCs(Evil Multinational Corporations) creating algorithms which resulted in the destruction of the civilization we used to know.
In later life, he escaped to follow his dream of being a burden on society and writing least-selling apps for the iPhone(e.g., QwikLit).
At an early age, he befriended an IBM 1620, and computers would be his best friends in the ensuing years.
A short while ago, his latest computer, having grown weary of plotting the destruction of non-silicon life forms, presented him with several short stories which he has dutifully edited into an apocalyptic volume.
