In addition to singing bass with the Chromatics, this year’s Musical Guests of Honor, Alan Smale writes alternate and twisted history, and occasional pure SF and fantasy. His novella of a Roman invasion of ancient America, “A Clash of Eagles”, won the Sidewise Award for Alternate History, and his novels set in the same universe, CLASH OF EAGLES (2015), EAGLE IN EXILE (2016), and EAGLE AND EMPIRE (2017), are available from Del Rey. Alan has also sold 40+ pieces of shorter fiction to Asimov’s, Realms of Fantasy, Abyss & Apex, and numerous other magazines and original anthologies. His latest Asimov’s tale, a collaboration with Rick Wilber, was the cover story for their May/June 2018 issue. Alan grew up in Yorkshire, England, acquired degrees in Physics and Astrophysics from Oxford University, and currently conducts astronomical research at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
