- About the Author
Steve Utley first broke into print in the seventh grade
with a poem about Hannibal (the Carthaginian general,
not Samuel L. Clemens's hometown), but it wasn't until
his freshman year of high school, when he discovered Mars
— the Mars of science fiction's two great romantics,
Edgar Rice Burroughs and Ray Bradbury — that he
somehow understood that he, too, must grow up to be a
Writer, or at least a rich and famous person. This desire
eventually led him to Texas (from Tennessee of all places),
where he fell in with other young writers, including Lisa
Tuttle, Howard Waldrop, and Bruce Sterling. Although his
heart remains in Austin, family matters have brought him
back to the environs of Nashville, smack on the buckle
of the Bible Belt. He leads a quiet life, surrounded by
his books, his cats and his dangerously inbred neighbors.
His work as a Writer (not quite so rich or famous) has
been gathered in three collections: This Impatient Ape, Career Moves of The Gods and Ghost
Seas (1997 Ticonderoga Publications). A new volume,
The Beasts of Love, is forthcoming from Wheatland
Press and gathers 31 stories published between 1973
and 1997, plus a swell introduction by Lisa Tuttle.
