As a kid, Rann Murray's parents signed him up for a subscription to the Science Fiction Book Club, then they bought him a Robert The Robot toy with a fancy control module, then a telescope. So how could a spoiled brat like that not end up writing science fiction?

Rann graduated from Michigan State University and still lives in the Great Lake State with his wife and three spoiled brat cats.
