Brian Niemeier is a best selling science fiction author and a John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer finalist. His second book, Souldancer, won the first ever Dragon Award for Best Horror Novel. He chose to pursue a writing career despite formal training in history and theology. His journey toward publication began at the behest of his long-suffering gaming group, who tactfully pointed out that he seemed to enjoy telling stories more than planning and adjudicating games.
The first three novels of Brian's Soul Cycle SF/horror series, Nethereal, Souldancer, and The Secret Kings, are available now.
His Soul Cycle short story "Elegy for the Locust" appears in the #1 best selling science fiction anthology Forbidden Thoughts.
