About the Author

K. J. Russell is an author of speculative fiction based in Houston, Denver and Colorado Springs. His novella, Absolute Tenacity, has been described as "the kind of story that force feeds you bits and pieces, slowly filling your psyche with reveals and snippets of underlying horror, until the needle is brandished and you (along with the story) pop violently with a raw, unexpected ambivalence." He is often seen at conventions in his home towns and beyond, and is an active member of both the Houston Writers Guild and Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers. On behalf of the HWG he has edited two anthologies of science fiction and fantasy. His novel, The Dusty Man, will be published in May 2015.

Praise for K.J. Russell's work

"Absolute Tenacity, held my interest and attention to become my all-time, best non-stop read. His scenes filled my mind with images and colors I’ve not experienced in print since Al Feldstein’s graphic artwork in Tales from the Crypt."
- E. L. Russell, author of the Evolutis Rising series

"[Absolute Tenacity is] a shattering view of the potential of love and hate, of fear and joy, and of every emotion betwixt and between not only to drive actions but to fuel them, in this tale of an epic family battle across worlds, across solar systems, and across time."
-Pamela Fagan Hutchins, author of the Katie and Annalise series
