We do our poor best to run a respectable site, but if you are offended by the opinions or content of any of the works here, please understand that our editors concern themselves with a writer's skill, not politics or religious views.

If you are moved by any of the work here, for better or worse, please e-mail us and let us know. If you like what you see, tell your friends, particularly if they work for major publishing houses. If you write, or know someone who does, please have a look at our submission guidelines . Have questions about submitting your work? Read our FAQ.

Question Master and Staff Writer N. M. White

N.M. White (Mark211 on Quantum Muse) is from Leeds, West Yorkshire and therefore has a voice that could get him cast as a Wildling, a Stark or a Greyjoy in the HBO version of Game of Thrones. His day job is concerned with modern language education and he has previously worked for the British Council in Russia, Mexico and Singapore. He also spent 7 years as a development editor on the English language list at Cambridge University Press.

He holds a Master's degree in Literary Linguistics from the University of Nottingham, UK, and became interested in Science and Fantasy Fiction originally through a lifelong love of comic books and graphic novels (especially those by writers Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Garth Ennis, Alejandro Jodorowsky and Eric Shanower).

He was introduced to Quantum Muse by an old friend from school in Leeds, the British Fantasy and Science Fiction author, Ross M. Kitson, and has not looked back since.

Art Director and Staff Writer Richard Tornello

Rick always had an interest in Art. He studied at The Art Students League in NYC years ago and dropped out to meet responsibilities of a family. He continued to keep and interest in art and science fiction as well as pick up a degree in History and Asian Studies from Rutgers University. A couple of years ago he began taking drawing classes at a local college, after a 40 year hiatus, so he could possibly begin illustrating some of his childrenís poems for a book for his grandchildren; if possible get it published and distributed as a free book for disadvantaged areas.

He has been collecting art for over 30 years, and writing science fiction, fantasy stories and poetry for just under 10 years. Art and writing came together when he was asked to assist the Editor of Quantum Muse as the Art Director. Every month his tasks are to identify and get different artists to allow the ZINE to display a few of their pieces.


Staff Writer Harris Tobias

Harris Tobias lives and writes in Charlottesville, Virginia. He is the author of The Greer Agency, A Felony of Birds and dozens of short stories. His fiction has appeared in Ray Gun Revival, Dunesteef Audio Magazine, Literal Translations, FriedFiction, Down In The Dirt, Eclectic Flash, E Fiction and several other obscure publications.

Writer/Assistant Editor/Web Developer: Jeromy Henry

Jeromy Henry has had over a dozen stories published in e-zines such as Fear and Trembling, Flagship, 365 Tomorrows, Defenestration, Wanderings, Daikaijuzine, and Quantum Muse. Though no one has offered to pay him large sums of money for his work, it could still happen. He's an optimist.

Jeromy graduated from Drury College in 1997 with degrees in English and Art. On discovering that he needed a real job to pay his student loans and eat, he went back to school and earned a B.S. in Computer Science from Columbia College in 2005.

Besides writing, Jeromy designs card and board games, programs, draws, watches anime, reads sci-fi and fantasy, and tries to keep up with his two munchkins.

Writer/Editor: Michael Gallant

Michael Gallant was born in southern New Hampshire in 1968 to a wandering band of gypsies, tramps and thieves fleeing economic hardship and possible criminal prosecution in their native Massachusetts. This is hardly surprising as various ancestors had previously left France, Ireland, Scotland, Germany and Finland in haste, using affected accents and large false mustaches to avoid detection. To this day, Mike is most comfortable with his bags packed and one leg over the windowsill.

A mediocre student in high school, he somehow felt that enlistment in the United States Marine Corps followed by the earning of a Bachelor's degree in History at the University of New Hampshire would somehow improve his employment prospects. Predictably, he worked for five years for a municipal water department, installing and repairing meters in dark, musty, cramped basements and crawl spaces. Outside of Managment, he has yet to meet a snake or rat he didn't like. In August of 2000, he became a certified Emergency Medical Technician because he found it easier to deal with bloody trauma cases than small town politics.

He lives in Salem, New Hampshire with his lovely wife and two domestic cats, who - his wife assures him - are his, despite the fact that they look nothing like him. In his spare time he avoids creditors, brews his own beer, fences (with swords, not stolen goods, which is odd, given his ancestry), and provides editors with something to reject.
