My name is James Van Pelt. When I'm not teaching high school or college English in western Colorado, I am a science fiction, fantasy and horror writer (among other things). My short stories have appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies, including Asimov's, Analog, Talebones, Realms of Fantasy, Weird Tales and others. I have five books out, including four short story collections, STRANGERS AND BEGGARS, THE LAST OF THE O-FORMS AND OTHER STORIES, THE RADIO MAGICIAN AND OTHER STORIES and FLYING IN THE HEART OF THE LAFAYETTE ESCADRILLE. My novel, which came out in Oct. '06 is entitled SUMMER OF THE APOCALYPSE.

I have been a Nebula finalist, a John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer finalist, and have been nominated for Pushcart prizes. My first collection was named a BEST BOOK FOR YOUNG ADULTS by the American Library Association, and my last collection won the COLORADO BOOK AWARD.
