Shore Leave 41 Guest: Russ Colchamiro

Russ Colchamiro

Russ Colchamiro is the author of the rollicking space adventure, Crossline, the hilarious sci-fi backpacking comedy series, Finders Keepers, Genius de Milo, and Astropalooza, and is editor of the anthology, Love, Murder & Mayhem, all with Crazy 8 Press.


Russ lives in New Jersey with his wife, two children, and crazy dog, Simon, who may in fact be an alien himself. Russ has also contributed to several other anthologies, including Tales of the Crimson Keep, Pangaea, and Altered States of the Union. He is now at work on a top-secret project, and a Finders Keepers spin-off.


As a matter of full disclosure, readers should not be surprised if Russ spontaneously teleports in a blast of white light followed by screaming fluorescent color and the feeling of being sucked through a tornado. It's just how he gets around -- windier than the bus, for sure, but much quicker.
