About the author…
This is the website for World Fantasy Award-winning author Gregory Norman Bossert. (That’s me!)
I began writing fiction in 2009, after artist Iain McCaig dared (and inspired) me to write a screenplay. I wrote two, and then a handful of stories, and have no plans of stopping.
My recent publications include Twelve and Tag in the March 2015 issue of Asimov’s Science Fiction, and A Fine Cup upcoming at Stupefying Stories. Also in 2014: The Leaves Upon Her Falling Light at Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Spinning the Thread at Kaleidotrope, Two Things About Thrand Zandy’s TechnoThèque at Unlikely Story, and Smartmob at Schlock Magazine.
My story The Telling appeared in Beneath Ceaseless Skies #109 in November 2012; it won the 2013 World Fantasy Award for short fiction. An audio adaptation is available at PodCastle. My story Bloom from the December 2013 issue of Asimov’s was a finalist for the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award.
My stories The Union of Soil and Sky, Slow Boat, and Freia in the Sunlight appeared in Asimov’s Science Fiction in 2010, and Lost Wax and Bloom in Asimov’s 2013. Slow Boat was reprinted in Russian in the November 2011 issue of Esli Magazine and in Czech in XB-1, and Freia in the Sunlight has been adapted as an audio performance by Escape Pod. Twelve and Tag is being adapted by the Starship Sofa podcast.
l attended the Clarion 2010 Writer’s Workshop in San Diego, with Delia Sherman, Ellen Kushner, George RR Martin, Dale Bailey, Samuel R Delany, Ann and Jeff VanderMeer and seventeen extraordinary new writers. Click here for updates on my amazing Clarion colleagues!
I work as a researcher and designer for motion pictures; my credits include Beowulf, A Christmas Carol, and Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. I currently work as a previzualization/layout artist at the legendary Industrial Light & Magic, now a division of the Walt Disney Company, where my credits include Lucy, Tomorrowland, Jurassic World, and Avengers: Age of Ultron.
I work as well on independent films. I designed and animated the Myster Odd book trailer for Jeff and Ann VanderMeer (as well as designing their Cheeky Frawg Books website), made a trailer for Wonderbook, created the One Minute Weird Tales series, and did audio and video for several stop-motion shorts by Tony McVey.
I design and build experimental musical instruments, and play music with them, for some definition of “play” and “music”. You can find pictures and audio samples on my other website, Sudden Sound Studios.
