Michael F. Haspil is a geeky engineer and nerdy artist. A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, he had the opportunities to serve as an ICBM crew commander and as a launch director at Cape Canaveral. The art of storytelling called to him from a young age and he has plied his craft over many years and through diverse media. He has written original stories for as long as he can remember and has dabbled in many genres. However, Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror have whispered directly to his soul. He hosts the “Quantum Froth Dispatches” podcast which examines storytelling through pop-culture classics and shares author interviews.
When he isn’t writing, you can find him sharing stories with his role-playing group, cosplaying, computer gaming, or collecting and creating replica movie props. He devotes the bulk of his hobby time to assembling and painting miniatures for his tabletop wargaming addiction. Michael is a regular contributor to “The Long War” a premiere podcast and webcast dedicated to tabletop gaming, but especially to Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000. He has also collected and made replica movie props for over twenty years and enjoys the way a particular collectible lets an individual connect with a meaningful story.
His novel from TOR books, “Graveyard Shift”, an urban fantasy story about an immortal pharaoh out to stop an ancient vampire conspiracy in modern-day Miami, was well-received by critics and readers alike and was a finalist for the Colorado Book Award. Michael is currently working on other stories within the world of “Graveyard Shift”, known as “Umbra Case Files”, as well as other novels. He is represented by Sara Megibow of the KT Literary Agency.
