Eric James Stone:
I want to thank the TWG Powers That Be for giving me my own little corner of the forum.  I thought I'd just take this opportunity to reintroduce myself.  Here's my official bio:

One of Eric James Stone's earliest memories is of seeing an Apollo moon-shot launch on television. That might explain his life-long fascination with astronomy and space travel. His father's collection of old science fiction ensured that Eric grew up on a full diet of Asimov, Heinlein and Clarke.

While getting his degree in political science at Brigham Young University, Eric took some creative writing classes. He wrote several short stories, and even submitted one for publication, but it was rejected. Having a naturally lazy disposition, he gave up on creative writing for over ten years.

Those years were not entirely unproductive: Eric graduated from Baylor Law School, worked on a Congressional campaign in New York, and then took a job in Washington, D.C., with one of those special interest groups politicians are always complaining that other politicians are being influenced by.

Then he quit the political scene to work as a web developer for a dot-com company in Utah, in order to be a part of the Great Internet Boom. Shortly thereafter -- and he insists the events are not causally related -- the Great Internet Bust began. He managed to keep his job, and still works there today.

In 2002 he began writing fiction again, and in 2003 he attended Orson Scott Card's Literary Boot Camp.

A winner in the 2004 Writers of the Future Contest, Eric has had stories published by Analog and Intergalactic Medicine Show.

Eric lives in Eagle Mountain, Utah.  His website can be found at www.ericjamesstone.com.
