Byron Alexander Campbell is a writer and editor enduring an anonymous existence in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. He prefers to think of it as “biding his time.” He doesn’t particularly care what he writes or who reads it, and his writing and thinking frequently ping-pongs between high- and lowbrow, humor and horror, genre and experimental forms, elusive dream logic and unequivocal reportage. He is especially fond of devices that blend the intentionality of literary writing with the audience implication of games and other interactive forms. Byron’s short fiction has appeared in Polluto, [out of nothing], Encyclopedia Destructica’s Strange Attractors: Investigations in Non-Humanoid Extraterrestrial Sexualities, and A Commonplace Book of the Weird: The Untold Stories of H.P. Lovecraft, among others. He is the author/editor of several unpublished longer works, including an experimental found novel and a child’s episodic tale about an insatiable, anachronistic dinosaur. He is also the author of two longform works of interactive fiction, Room 206 and A Very Hairy Fish-Mess, which can be found on the IF Archive. He is an editorial assistant at Insert Blanc Press and an occasional game critic, currently at nerdspan.com. When he gets around to it, he collects literary credits and publishes short fiction at his website/blog, theyearisyesterday.wordpress.
