Bewildering Stories biography
Bill was born in New York City in 1950. He graduated from Columbia University in 1972 and received a Ph.D. in Slavic Languages & Literatures from the University of Michigan in 1981.
After a period of aimless drifting and a series of zigzags, Bill panicked and got a real job in an office. He has worked for the past 20 years at a classical music management agency.
When not busy avoiding work at the day job or doing “Bewildering Stories” stuff, Bill finds time to cut education budgets as Mayor of Sim City and recently conquered the world as Stalin in “Civ IV” despite brutal counter-attacks from Montezuma and Hammurabi.
Bill has published a couple of poems and the unfinished Great American Novel is somewhere under a pile of paper in his desk drawer. He loves Philip K. Dick, Stanislaw Lem, H.G. Wells, and the Strugatsky brothers.
