About M.G. Herron
M.G. Herron writes science fiction and fantasy stories for adrenaline junkies.
His books explore new worlds, futuristic technology, ancient mysteries, various apocalypses, and the vagaries of the human experience.
His characters have a sense of humor (except for the ones who don't). They stand up to strange alien monsters from other worlds...unless they slept through their alarm again.
Like ordinary people, Herron's heroes try to make the world a better place, and sometimes screw things up.
I mean, would it really be a normal week if Harrison didn't get stuck in a repeating time loop? Or if Caledonia forgets (again) to set her lasers to stun and accidentally brains someone in a bar brawl? (I really think she does it on purpose, the scoundrel).
New readers can try out a bunch of Herron's books and stories for free at www.mgherron.com.
