About Bruce Golden
Novelist, journalist, satirist, Bruce Golden’s short stories have been published more than 150 times across a score of countries and 30 anthologies. Asimov’s Science Fiction described his second novel, “If Mickey Spillane had collaborated with both Frederik Pohl and Philip K. Dick, he might have produced Bruce Golden’s BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE”--and about his novel EVERGREEN, "If you can imagine Ursula Le Guin channeling H. Rider Haggard, you'll have the barest conception of this stirring book, which centers around a mysterious artifact and the people in its thrall." His latest book, MONSTER TOWN, is a satirical send-up of old hard-boiled detective stories featuring movie monsters of the black & white era. It's currently in development for a possible TV series.

Asimov's Science Fiction magazine describes Mortals All as "Steeped in the ambience of classic 1950's Galaxy magazine...social satire, irreverent anti-establishmentarianism, and pseudo-hardboiled narration...Golden writes with zest and good pacing...a certain flippancy of characterization and delivery..."
