About Randall Schanze

Randall Schanze is a Science Fiction author and blogger from Florida. He's the child of a NASA engineer and an immigrant, and has had a life-long fascination with space and exotic cultures. He's wild-eyed, engaging, chatty, smart, interested in nearly everything, and hence almost instantly annoying in person. Just the same, his writing has been praised by several well-respected professional SF authors.

His first love is Science Fiction, and he's been writing for 30 years, though much of that time was spent writing under various pseudonyms. The most noteworthy of these was "Kevin Long," a name he used to publish four books. For half a decade he was the head writer and editor on the Republibot website but he has since retired. During that period, he went by the nom de web "Republibot 3.0" in a paranoid bid to protect his identity from his stalkers, though obvious since he's using his real name now, he's gotten more laid back about the whole thing. He's middle aged, happily married, and has a family.

He also sings.

I enjoyed Randall's book. I've read some of his other stuff; this book had a bit more horror in it than usual. One of my favorite stories was "The Negative Side of Positive Proof," which is about an Old Testament-style bureaucratic Satan (rather different from the medieval conception). "Cassadaga" is enjoyable horror/humor. The story collection contains strong variety. You have a time travel tale, and an historical Mayan story about prophecy and calendars. I really enjoyed the beginning of "Bob and the Monastery of Blood," which focused on a space traveler dealing with the effects of relativity. The elongated action scene at the end did not grab me as much as the characterization at the beginning. I found the stories to be snappy and clever and well worth reading.
