John Van Allen

John Van Allen is a psychologist and enjoys photography. He has published short stories in various journals and is working on a set of three novels.

The Fates of Atomic Zombies” has a playful title. What on earth are “atomic zombies”? But the key word is “Fates,” plural.

In ancient mythology, Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos were rather unappealing hags who had a somewhat confused genealogy and served mainly to personify the plot devices of beginning, middle and end. John’s story brings the Fates to life as three modern ladies who, as sisters, don’t seem to get along very well. Readers will be, by turns, amused, intrigued and faintly appalled.

Welcome to Bewildering Stories, John. We hope to hear from you again soon and often!
