Steve Libbey


Hailing from Cincinnati, I've been writing and playing in punk/noise bands since the late 80s. I am the co-creator of the Secret World Chronicle series (Baen Books) with Mercedes Lackey, which features Dennis Lee, Veronica Giguere, and Cody Martin. I've also published fantasy novel The Bloodbaths with Subatomic Books.

My musical projects, as Robotic Storm Cloud (from which the first musical theme of the SWC podcasts was derived), I, Beast, Warren Ghoul Harding Award For Excellence, and older bands such as The Scree, Martian Electric, and Snowblind, can be heard at

I currently live in Seattle with author Heather Reddy and manx Justine.
