The Overlords acknowledge your existence. As befits our great benevolence, we shall spare your puny planet. For now. Bwahahahaha!* * Translation: Hi, I'm Johne, John with a silent vanity 'e'. I'm a technical writer by day for a medical devices company and editor and author by night. I've been a proofreader at Deep Magic magazine, an Associate Editor at The Sword Review, Managing Editor at Dragons, Knights, and Angels magazine, and, in 2006, founder of Ray Gun Revival magazine, which I still run. I've written a number of short stories and one novel, and am 3/4s of the way through my first draft of a swashbuckling adventure space opera called The Adventures of the Sky Pirate. I share blogging duties at the AuthorCulture blog with a number of names you know.
