Duane Pesice (aka “moderan”) is a writer, musician, and itinerant backyard chef. He has written a great many stories and articles, appearing in publications ranging from local newspapers to genre magazines, under a great many assumed names. He has even appeared under his real name from time to time.
He has been a science fiction and horror fan since early boyhood. Recently disabled by a bout with lung disease, Duane has turned writing and music-making into his full-time occupation.
He lives in the desert southwest with his wife, grandchild, and a menagerie of furred and feathered kids.
