Rod Santos dwells in a vast suburbia (Westchester, NY) bordered by a shadowy, lawless land (the Bronx). At work, he hoards fodder for blackmail (“Human Resources”). His tales can be found in such places as The Town Drunk, Cinema Spec, Philippine Speculative Fiction 3, and Paper Blossoms, Sharpened Steel (forthcoming). He is hard at work on a fantasy novel (any day now) that he predicts will be humorous. When in need of serenity, he will watch proof of God’s love (squirrels).
