Richard Zwicker is an English teacher who lives with his wife in Vermont. His short stories have appeared in “Penumbra,” “Plasma Frequency Magazine,” “Perihelion Science Fiction,” and other paying markets that don’t all begin with “P.”
I like to write character-driven science fiction. If the science is driving, I usually hit a tree. Humor and seriousness often fight to a draw in my stories. Sometimes I write fantasy to get away from all the gadgets. I lived and taught in Brazil for eight years, but I’m still a lousy soccer player. Other than reading and writing, my hobbies include playing the piano, jogging, and fighting the good fight against middle age. Much of what short story writing success I’ve had I credit to Critters.org.
