Bewildering Stories biography
Edward Morris was born on Seymour Johnson AFB in North Carolina, and grew up in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania (home of the Slinky and the Harrison Narcotics Act). Upon graduating Temple University with a B.A. in Film, he did a tour of duty in the Bay Area as a boho columnist for Allen Cohen’s Open City, then emigrated to Portland, Oregon for reasons of sanity and gainful employment.
Edward lives and works in Portland with his Muse, artist, poet and Art Therapy student Serena Blossom Appel. He hosts the Irradiated Poets’ open mic at the Red and Black Cafe every first Monday, and is spearheading the Portland release party of Jeff VanderMeer’s “Shriek: An Afterword” with local contemporary Jay Lake.
His work has appeared in Interzone, Nowa Fantastyka, Oceans of the Mind, and numerous other wonderful publications. Edward and Texan author Lou Antonelli are currently in collaboration on a number of stories. As well, Mr. Morris is attending WorldCon to roll up his sleeves and volunteer at the Interzone table. He welcomes all correspondence to: Dante3000,at.gmail.com .
My story “Imagine,” in Interzone #200, was my first pro sale, and got nominated for the British Science Fiction Association Award, Best Short, as well as being put on the long list for the Sidewise.
