Meet The Editor
Howard Lowell Osterman collected a few rejection slips from popular magazines before deciding he preferred the steady salary of a staff writing position with a newspaper. That led to other "writing gigs" with magazines and book publishers. "A good living," as Osterman tells it. “But in my spare time I kept cranking out science fiction novels and short stories, usually working under pseudonyms to avoid conflicts with employers looking for a pound of flesh." He has lived in New York, Chicago, and Daytona. He would like to have his own robot.
Which author has inspired you the most?
Stephen King. He said, "If you wrote something for which someone sent you a check, if you cashed the check and it didn't bounce, and if you then paid the light bill with the money, I consider you talented."
