I live outside Salem, Oregon, but I'm originally from the backwoods of northern Idaho, a small town called Bonners Ferry. I moved around a lot growing up, and have largely continued to bounce around the Pacific Northwest. I was in the Army for a time, in hopes of getting away from winter, but they sent me Colorado and so I was miserable nine months out of the year. Did a tour in Afghanistan doing welding/fabrication and driving a wrecker. I currently am an occasional student and always in the middle of one catastrophe or another. I read a lot and play way, way too much Fallout 4, after which I beat myself up for not writing instead. I have an elderly dog that is just the grumpiest, it's why we get along so well. I like cars, my grandfather was building hot rods before such a thing as aftermarket existed and the love of automotive shenanigans is one of the only connections I have to that side of the family. I also like microbrews, because I live in Oregon, of course I do.

The Fallview Catastrophes
by Matthew Wanner
Two idiots discover a portal. It goes wherever it wants to, across time, space, and dimensions. The two idiots are Caleb and Tony, two deadbeat 20 somethings with no idea where they're going in life and few enough options. While the portal changes their life, and introduces them to a slew of weirdness, the only thing surprising to them is just how little it changed anything. They aren't scientists, or wizards, or particularly bright, so they abuse their portal, and the weirdness for beer money, and rent money, and occasionally just to avoid people.
