Richard Wadholm

Since graduating from the Clarion West Writers' Workshop in 1997, Richard Wadholm has sold several stories to Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, one of which, "Green Tea," was a finalist for the year 2000 Theodore Sturgeon Award for best SF story of the year. Rick lives in southern California, where he's spent most of his life. ElectricStory.com is proud to publish his first novel, Astronomy, a horror tale set in H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. Here's what Rick has to say about himself:

"Born in Grand Forks, North Dakota, right next to the air base. (We used to refer to it as 'The First Goodbye.') My first sf book would have been The Door into Summer, by Robert Heinlein. My first real, life-changing SF Experience would be Rite of Passage, by Alexei Panshin. (You laugh, Lucius, I'll slug you.) I read it when I was fourteen-years-and-one-week old, which is the only time I've ever been the exact age of a book's main character as I was reading about her. I fell in love with Mia Havero, fell in love with science fiction. Been having my heart broken one way or another ever since.

"My first published story was 'Ice Forest,' in Asimov's, which began life as a sidebar in Scientific American on the ramifications of freezing beryllium atoms to just above absolute zero, and seeing them in all their potential states. As I was just about to be laid off of my job of fifteen years, I was having a few thoughts about my own potential states.

"Not sure what to say on the subject of Astronomy. I'll pass for the most part. Except this: the book is dedicated to my wife, Becky, who was tough and bright and funny, unflinchingly honest, and bore more than a passing resemblance to the heroine, Susan Gilbert. I don't know what I would be without her, probably nothing good."

The dedication was inadvertently omitted from the book. Rebecca Wadholm passed away in early 1999.

At the end of World War II, an American task force investigates a Nazi project to reanimate the dead and summon strange monsters from other dimensions. Deranged by their own studies, the Nazi scientists have been difficult to find, much less talk to, and only the linguist Susan Gilbert has had any luck getting their cooperation. When it turns out that the biggest, most horrific experiment of them all has yet to be completed, she must join forces with her own worst enemy, a remorseless, manipulative villain hunted by the Allies, the Nazis, and supernatural monsters alike.
