About William R. Soldan

He’s previously had work published in The Raw Alternative, Quail Bell, Danse Macabre, Sanitarium, and has a story forthcoming in The Fictioneer. This is his first scholarly publication.
William enjoys good books, bad movies, lifting very heavy things over his head, and consuming dangerously high quantities of caffeine—among other ridiculous things. You can follow him on Twitter @RustWriter1 (though he’s new to the tweeting game) or find him on Facebook (as Bill Soldan).
