Zachary Seibert


Zachary Seibert escaped from a dream he had some three decades ago, and is most likely a figment of his own imagination. He is the creator of the Vast Land, an original setting assembled from loose bits of cosmology found hiding in his subconsciousness, and is co-author of the Calefactory series with Chris Capps. He lives on coffee and speculative fiction at a desk in his pre-frontal cortex, which has a very good view of the midwestern United States.

  • Beware the Well Fed Man on July 02, 2015

    An impressively imagined series debut. With a vividly high-contrast, instantly immersive setting, Capps has taken a cluster of conventions from the architecture of science-fiction and warped them to build something novel, yet simultaneously classic. Reminiscent of the headiest post-apocalyptic fare, there is also a decidedly Western ambience to the story that balances the conflict between characters and environment. The near-mythological characters are tempered by human relationship and limitations, poised between tragedy and heroism. This story approaches the motivations and values of heroic endeavor with a range of perspective I haven't seen from a new author in many years. Richly atmospheric, well-developed and excellently crafted, I will absolutely keep up to date with this series as more installments emerge.
