About this title

Synopsis:

Paper Golem continues its series of single author collections by exciting new writers with Hugo and Nebula Award nominee Eric James Stone. PRAISE FOR ERIC JAMES STONE:"The author creates a clever plot and characters worth rooting for, all leading to an exciting climax." - Brit Marschalk, Tangent Online"Stone explores many themes: the nature of life, magic versus technology, magic as technology, moral dilemmas, and self-sacrifice being only a few." - Scott M. Sandridge, The Fix"This wonderfully written science fiction story deftly pulls off laugh after laugh while also illuminating critical issues surrounding science, religion, culture, and, most importantly, what exactly is that thing we call truth." - Jason Sanford, storySouth"Eric James Stone manages to combine religion and science in an entertaining, well-plotted tale that doesn't come off as overly preachy." - Rena Hawkins, Tangent Online

About the Author:

A Nebula Award winner, Hugo Award nominee, and winner in the Writers of the Future Contest, Eric James Stone has had stories published in Year's Best SF 15, Analog, Nature, and Kevin J. Anderson's Blood Lite anthologies of humorous horror, among other venues.
 
One of Eric's earliest memories is of seeing an Apollo moon-shot launch on television. That might explain his fascination with 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 political science degree at Brigham Young University, Eric took creative writing classes. He wrote several short stories, and even submitted one for publication, but after it was rejected he gave up on creative writing for a decade.
 
During those years Eric graduated from Baylor Law School, worked on a congressional campaign, and took a job in Washington, DC, with one of those special interest groups politicians always complain that other politicians are influenced by. He quit the political scene in 1999 to work as a web developer in Utah.
 
In 2002 he started writing fiction again, and in 2003 he attended Orson Scott Card's Literary Boot Camp. In 2007 Eric got laid off from his day job just in time to go to the Odyssey Writing Workshop.  He has since found a new web development job.
 
In 2009 Eric became an assistant editor for Intergalactic Medicine Show.
Eric lives in Eagle Mountain, Utah.  His website is ericjamesstone.com.
