About the Author
Joshua Unruh writes all the things. He has developed webseries and television pilots that have never been produced, comic books that have never been drawn, and roleplaying games that have never been played. But he always publishes the stories!
Through his imprint, Pulp Diction Press, Joshua specializes in modern retro fiction. Action scientists, haunted cowboys, girl super spies, diverse superheroes, and marauding vikings are just some of what he offers through PDP.
Joshua strives to make everything he writes clever, interesting, or funny. Like Meatloaf said, two out of three ain't bad.
He makes his home in Oklahoma City with a wife, a son, a dog, and no room in the storm shelter when the inevitable tornado hits.
Daniel Swensen grew up on a diet of trashy B-movies, Robert E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and EC comics. He's been a student, a disc jockey, a musician, a sandwich artist, a web developer, and a freelance writer. Like many walking, talking, writer cliches, he lives in a remote area with his wife and two cats.
