Author -- Martin E. Stephenson

"I'm a 40 year-old father of four. I've been a locksmith, a truck driver, a trucking dispatcher and a volunteer archaeologist. My favorite hobby is scouring the Mojave desert in search of Paleo
artifacts. My biggest influences would have to be REH (of course!), Clark Ashton Smith and H.P.
Lovecraft. I've previously had a short S&S story published in the now defunct Stygian Vortex Publications' Shadow Sword Magazine, issue # 12, entitled "Rite of Privacy." "The Storm in the Jewel" is my first webzine publication."
