Peter A. Balaskas
Bewildering Stories biography
A man of many professions — including a microfilm clerk, an environmental and pharmaceutical chemist, a theatre actor, a freelance news camera operator and a camera technician for NBC/Universal Studios, Peter A. Balaskas has finally discovered his niche: speculative fiction writer and editor/co-founder of Ex Machina Press, the proud parent of Silent Voices: a creative mosaic of fiction.
Peter received his BS in Chemistry (minor in English) and his MA in English with a double emphasis in Creative Writing and Literature from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. His fiction and poetry have been published in Bewildering Stories, The Aroostook Review, Pale Skies, Sage of Consciousness, and Rogue Worlds. His critical essay on Harlan Ellison’s “I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream” was published in Criterion.
His supernatural novel, The Grandmaster, was ranked third in a nationwide Speculative Fiction Novel Contest and is published by Bards and Sages Publishing. After finishing his first collection of short stories, titled In Our House, Peter is beginning his second short story collection, Out Through the Exit Door, which he hopes to finish by Fall of 2008.
