Hailing from the hills of rural North Alabama, Scott Oden's fascination with far-off places began in grade school, where he stumbled across the staggering and savage vistas of Robert E. Howard and Harold Lamb. Though Oden started writing his own tales at the age of fourteen, it would be many years before anything would come of it. In the meantime, he had a brief and tempestuous fling with academia before retiring to the private sector, where he worked the usual roster of odd jobs-from delivering pizza to stacking paper in the bindery of a printing company to clerking at a video store. Nowadays, Oden writes full-time from his family home near Huntsville.
Oden is the author of the critically-acclaimed historical novels MEN OF BRONZE (2005), MEMNON (2006), THE LION OF CAIRO (2010), and the forthcoming SERPENT OF HELLAS (2013). His short fiction has appeared in the latest volume of the long-running "Heroes in Hell" anthology, LAWYERS IN HELL.
