About the author

Matthew W. Quinn (b. 1984) grew up in Marietta, Georgia. After graduating from the University of Georgia with a dual degree in magazine journalism and history, his career has seen him reporting for one newspaper, editing two more, reporting for an online news service and a sports magazine, blogging for a cloud-computing firm and two film companies, and collecting Twitter feeds for online ad campaigns. His reporting has brought him into contact with presidential candidates, television celebrities, and notable authors and once earned him a commendation from the Georgia Department of Veterans' Service. Throughout all of this, he has written science fiction, fantasy, and horror. His first sale was during his last year at college, when he sold "I am the Wendigo" to the webzine CHIMAERA SERIALS. Though 2008 saw three sales to a fantasy print magazine that failed before they could be published, 2009 saw the sale of "Skirmish at the Vale's Edge" to BattleCorps, the official BattleTech tie-in site. He made his first professional-level sale, "Coil Gun," to PRESSURE SUITE: DIGITAL SCIENCE FICTION #3 in 2011. In 2012, he began self-publishing some of his short stories for Amazon's Kindle, one of which was "I am the Wendigo." He also sold the Viking horror tale "Nicor" to HEROIC FANTASY QUARTERLY. Now his published stories and many more have come together in a new collection, FLASHING STEEL, FLASHING FIRE: TEN TALES OF VALOR AND IMAGINATION. Matthew is also a regular participant in the podcast MYOPIA: DEFEND YOUR CHILDHOOD in which the movies you enjoyed as a child are put on trial to see if they hold up.
