Kevin Hosey - Author & Editor of Science Fiction & Horror

Kevin Hosey

Kevin Hosey is an author, editor and cartoonist. His short stories have appeared in several publications, including the Star Trek Strange New Worlds anthologies (Simon and Schuster), Hint Fiction (W.W. Norton), the magazine Beyond Centauri, and the retro adventure site 365 Tomorrows. His sci-fi Sasquatch story, “Our Own Backyard,” will appear in the upcoming anthology Bigfoot Tales from Open Casket Press this Spring.

Kevin also co-edited and wrote stories for two anthologies published by Cliffhanger Books. The first was a paranormal romance collection entitled Paramourtal that was nominated for Best Romance Anthology of 2010. The second, a collection of superhero stories called Gods of Justice, premiered at the 2011 San Diego Comic Con.

On the VERY cool side, his short story “Cure” (from Hint Fiction) was the subject of a sculpture created by artist Lawrence L’Horte at a recent Columbia Art League exhibit in Missouri. It was also filmed by two contestants for the 2012 Vail Film Festival in Colorado. Not bad for a story that is only 25 words long.

Besides writing speculative fiction, Kevin also enjoys creating weird illustrated humor. His cartoons have appeared in calendars, books, newspapers and magazines (including Starlog), and his doodles cover every random piece of paper he can get his hands on.
