Tech Tuesday is a weekly spotlight on the relationship between real life and a writer's imagination. As science fiction is all about looking ahead to the future, we asked our authors here at Dog Star Books to send us to a link to a new technology that influenced their writing, sparked a new idea for a story, or simply caught their attention and got them thinking.
The Author Matt Betts was born and raised in Lima, OH, and went to college in Toledo. He currently lives in Columbus with his wife, Mackenzie, and their two wonderful boys. Matt's short and flash fiction has focused a lot on humor and horror. His work appears in Arkham Tales, Ethereal Tales, the Triangulation: Taking Flight anthology, Bizarro Fiction! The Journal of Experimental Fiction 37, A Thousand Faces and Cinema Spec: Tales of Hollywood and Fantasy. Matt's poetry has been published in numerous venues, and his poem "Godzilla's Better Half" was nominated for a Rhysling Aware, the Science Fiction Poetry Association's highest honor. Matt is the author of Odd Men Out, a story of survival in a post-Civil War America overrun by zombies.
