I’m Lawrence M. Schoen, and I wear a lot of vocational hats. In addition to being an author, I’m also a psychologist, a small press publisher, a klingonist, and a hypnotist. I’ve had the pleasure of being nominated for the Campbell, Hugo, and Nebula awards. I’ve had two novels and two short story collections published by Hadley Rille Books, Three of the four are light and humorous SF about my space-faring hypnotist, the Amazing Conroy, and his über-cute, alien companion animal, a buffalito named Reggie who can eat anything and farts oxygen.
After a career of more than twenty years, I’m well on my way to being an overnight success. In the summer of 2013 I sold a book proposal to Tor, and then used that sale to secure an incredible agent. The book — Barsk: The Elephants’ Graveyard — will come out in December 2015. I expect it will change my life (and when you read it, maybe it will change yours).
