Timons Esaias is a satirist, writer and poet living in Pittsburgh. His works, ranging from literary to genre, have been published in eighteen languages. He has over a hundred poems in print, in markets ranging from Asimov’s Science Fiction and 5AM to Elysian Fields Quarterly: The Literary Journal of Baseball. He has also been a finalist for the British Science Fiction Award, and won the Asimov's Readers Award. His story "Norbert and the System" has appeared in a textbook, and in college curricula. Recent science fiction appearances include Asimov's, Analog and Future Games. His News Nots satire column appeared in seven newspapers, and convinced many readers that the Vatican was relocating to St. Louis; that the Pittsburgh Sewer & Water Authority had decided to add Prozac to the water supply (along with sodium pentothal at tax time); and that several cities had chosen to re-zone by residents' floor-covering preferences only, since that is what truly divides us. He is Adjunct Faculty at Seton Hill University, in the Writing Popular Fiction MFA Program. He tends to go on and on about stuff, so be careful when asking him questions.
