  • GUEST BIO

    Cameron McVey is an independent, science fiction author. He has written a trilogy (Nova Sol, Remnant Species, and Altered Earth) and three stand-alone books (Hold Still the Sky, Monsters of Utopia: a fairy tale manifesto and The Far Shores of Saucerland: the invasion and its aftermath in verse). All his works are available on Amazon.

    Cameron is currently working on a superhero book series. The first books will be released in the summer of 2018.

    He occasionally updates his blog (cameronmcvey.blogspot.com) but promises to do so more often soon. No, really.

    Cutting-edge science, especially having to do with the nature, function, and mystery of consciousness, and genetic alterations (hello, CRISP-R!) often find their way into Cameron’s stories. He often ponders, questions, pokes with a stick, kicks down the road and generally harasses the issues of free will vs. determinism, the moral responsibilities of having superpowers and the meaning of anomalous experiences.

    Cameron has been a panel member at FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention and appeared on the podcast MotherF***ker in a Cape. He often tells bad jokes and jokes that only amuse him. Often those two are the same.

    Cameron has been a fan of fantasy and science fiction ever since he can remember. Growing up he used to fall asleep listening to CBS Radio Mystery Theater (and sometimes still does) and spent Saturday afternoons watching Creature Double Feature on WLVI, channel 56. Also, he collected comics and ended up doing his master’s thesis (“How Green Is Your Power Ring?”) on the structure of the modern, American superhero comic book.

    His mother is a published poet and his father a world-class educator. He caught the writing bug from them at a very early age. He can remember scrawling short stories on scraps of paper in his bedroom late at night when he was supposed to be asleep.

    His old job allowed him to travel the world. He has been to the Great Wall of China, Angkor Wat, the Taj Mahal, the Sahara Desert, Machu Picchu and countless other spots in Asia, Africa, and South America. He has also traveled extensively throughout the United States and is, once again, living in the Colorado Rockies. He has been inspired by both his travels and all the people he’s met and worked with along the way.
