Steven Popkes

Most of Steven Popkes' written work makes his characters' lives unpleasant. He would like to be able to write heartwarming stories of human fortitude and the value of love and family but doesn't have the knack.

Instead, he writes about miserable people with miserable lives who have a brief moment when they raise their heads and look around. Fortunately for him, some people share his misanthropic taste and he has been collected in several annual "Best of's"-- most recently in the Best American Mystery Stories, released in fall of 2017. He is a regular at the Boskone and Arisia Science Fiction conventions.

He is an aerospace engineer by day. He lives near Boston, is a private pilot and has a brown belt in Judo.
