About Harvey Stanbrough
Harvey Stanbrough was born in New Mexico, seasoned in Texas and baked in Arizona. He’s pretty well done.
For a time, because he was unable to do otherwise, he split his writing personality among five personas and—strictly for purposes of being cagey—slipped in and out among several pseudonyms.
But he takes a pill for that now and writes only under his own name.
Harvey is an award-winning writer who follows Heinlein’s Rules avidly. You can download your own free PDF copy of Robert A. Heinlein’s Business Habits for Writers, better known as Heinlein’s Rules, by Clicking Here.
Harvey also enjoys the freedom of a technique called Writing Into the Dark, which he learned from professional writer Dean Wesley Smith. (See the blog roll.)
By the middle of June 2019, Harvey had written and published 44 novels, 8 novellas, over 190 short stories, and hundreds of poems. By early August 2021, he’d added 22 more novels and around 50 more short stories to his inventory. He has compiled and published 30 collections of short fiction and 5 critically acclaimed poetry collections. He also wrote several nonfiction books on the craft of writing. You can find those on this website.
Some of his poetry collections have been nominated for the Frankfurt (Germany) Book Fair Award, the Foreword Magazine Engraver’s Award, the Pushcart Prize, and the National Book Award. One of his books on writing (Writing Realistic Dialogue & Flash Fiction) finished in 5th place for the BEA (NY) Book of the Year Award (Education).
Harvey’s titles are available in every ebook format in over 400 markets and 1200 libraries worldwide. Several of his longer works also are available in trade paperback editions at Amazon.
Some of Harvey’s short fiction still appears under the names of his various personas. They refused to let go. Hence, you can find those under his own name as well as those of Gervasio Arrancado, Eric Stringer, and Nicolas Z Porter.
Harvey misses and envies his former personas. He envies Gervasio Arrancado his rich cultural heritage and his wealth of acquaintances, Eric Stringer his frenetic frenzy, and Nick Porter his plethora of experiences. He still studies them and their works and writes whatever scraps they leave to him. And he is appreciative. After all, there are writers starving in China.
Oh, the ball cap. Harvey was never a POW, though he was a US Marine and supports those who were or are POWs. That’s the story on the ball cap.

Punctuation for Writers is a completely unique approach to punctuation. It teaches writers to wield punctuation as a tool rather than treating it as just one more thing they have to look up and "get right." I cringe every time someone says "Oh the most important two books in my writing library are PFW and Strunk & White" because here's the thing: Once you've read and understood PFW, you no longer need rules-regurgitating books. You no longer need rules at all because now you understand what the punctuation itself actually does, the effect it actually has on the reader. In giving you Knowledge, Punctuation for Writers renders "rules" obsolete. Someday physicists are going to find out that The Equation that explains everything in the universe is 1 = 1. Everything in math boils down to 1. That's what PFW has done for punctuation. Includes an essential grammar refresher.
The Ark is that way. The very future of humanity depends on it.
Unfortunately, and despite the intensive screening process for the crew of The Ark and the repopulation passengers she's carrying, wherever humans go, they will bring along their flaws, foibles and shortcomings.
The Ark is a city of over 200,000 souls. It's also a civilization in its own right, representing several civilizations from Earth. On it, there will be romance, fun, anger, various minor and major conflicts—in other words, Life.
