Richard A. Lupoff


In his highly checkered career, Richard A. Lupoff has been a short-order cook, dishwasher, movie usher, military policeman, college professor, and petty bureaucrat. All of these experiences have fed into the rich — if somewhat chaotic — data bank that nourishes his literary career. In that career he has been a sports writer, radio news writer and broadcaster, novelist, short story writer, critic, screen-writer, editor, anthologist, and on very rare occasions, poet.
He has the rare distinction of having had stories selected for best-of-the-year anthologies in three fields: science fiction, mystery, and horror.
