Dennis Latham has been called both a nut and a comic genius. He thinks either definition fits his personality.

“I’m like the insane relative mumbling in the corner during family gatherings,” he says. “After the Marine Corps in Vietnam, I’ve never been too serious about life.”

Latham’s new Ask The Smart Guy column is currently a monthly feature in Far Sector SFFH Magazine. His novels Michael In Hell, The Bad Season, and Driving With Ace are currently published by Clocktower Books on Fictionwise.com. Sudden Victims, a story collection, will be published by Hellbound Books in March of 2007.

Latham edits novels as a freelancer for A-1 Editing Service LLC and for the last decade has written a bi-monthly newsletter for combat veterans, The S-2 Report, dealing with VA benefits and the psychological affect of war. He is currently working on a new novel, The Lord Of Homicides.

He has been, among other things, an ironworker, a bar bouncer, a bodyguard, a horse handicapper, and the lead singer in a professional road band. He has a B.A. in English from the University of Cincinnati. He currently shares a Victorian house in Indiana with his wife Dorothy, who is a world class chef, and several cranky ghosts.
