Stewart, Gene - USA - English
Gene Stewart was born on the 146th birthday of Charles Dickens in Altoona,
Pennsylvania. He began writing eight years later and publishing
eight years after that.
Editor Jeanne Cavelos compared one of his short novels to J. D. Salinger's
work, and Harlan Ellison has called his writing Scintillant. Stewart's
fiction spans many styles and genres, but hallmarks of his work include
compassion for the common man; themes of doubt, paranoia, and the discovery of
hidden worlds or agendas; and the integrity of the individual when faced with
astounding events or intense challenges.
He considers Harlan Ellison a mentor and his inspirations include Philip K.
Dick, Thomas Pynchon, and Anthony Burgess.
He's published fiction, nonfiction, criticism, maps, photography, cartoons,
& poetry in such publications as SIRS Discoverer CD-ROM InterActive
for schools and libraries;
the anthologies Best American Erotica, The Year's Best Fantasy and
Horror, The Ultimate Witch, Codominium: Revolt on
War World, and Of Princes and Beauties;
Kendall/Hunt's Pegasus textbooks;
the e-zines CLUSTER, LIBIDO, and tomorrowsf;
the magazines ALTERNATE PERCEPTIONS, FICTION QUARTERLY, SKEPTICAL INQUIRER,
BEYOND, IMAGI-MOVIES, MINDSPARKS, ANALOG, ABORIGINAL SF, ASIMOV's SF,
MARION ZIMMER BRADLEY's FANTASY, MILITARY LIFESTYLE, FAMILY, MACON, LIFE TO
DAY, PENNSYLVANIA ANGLER, CRICKET For Children, and LADYBUG For Young Children;
the newspapers REV-UP and THE MOUNTAINEER-HERALD;
as well as various zines, digests and other forums.
He currently lives in the American midwest, where he is researching and writing
a novel of ancient sins, modern lies, and eternal truths.
