George S. Karagiannis was born in Thessaloniki, Greece in 1984. He finished the School of Veterinary Medicine and is currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Toronto, studying the molecular mechanisms of cancer metastasis. His academic website can be accessed here.
He enjoys writing science fiction, mainly in the sub-genres of:
- hard science fiction
- bizarro and horror sci-fi
- apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic science fiction.
His favorite science fiction author is Philip K. Dick, whom he has been reading since he was introduced in the field. Other authors he likes are: Isaac Asimov, Ursula LeGuin, Peter Hamilton and Brian Aldiss.
He began writing in an amateur level in about mid-2011 and completed several flash and short story pieces; he is currently in the ‘painful’ process of publishing them. Concepts of interest he likes to develop in his stories are the following: the fundamentals and reasoning behind human behavior and emotions, the freedom of will versus destiny, the personal perspective over facts and incidents.
He has previously published in Farther Starts Than These, Apocrypha and Abstractions, Weirdyear, The WiFiles and now at Bewildering Stories.
