Today on the Speculative Fiction Cantina we are pleased to welcome writers Jeff Provine and Benjamin Gorman.
I’m a farm kid from out in the flats of Northwest Oklahoma, where there wasn’t too much to do, but ever claiming to be bored would lead to chores, so we learned to entertain ourselves. I published my first book, the first "Celestial Voyages" novel, in college, and I’ve been writing ever since with works in anthologies, my webcomic "The Academy," and my blogging project "This Day in Alternate History." In 2009, I started a ghost walk for charity at the University of Oklahoma, telling hidden history and spooky stories about campus. After over 4,000 visitors, it’s still going strong, and I’ve followed it up with two more local walking tours and four collections of Oklahoma ghost stories: Campus Ghosts of Norman, Haunted Norman, Haunted Guthrie, and Haunted Oklahoma City. By day, I’m a curriculum developer and lecturer, teaching classes in Creative Writing and The History of Comic Books.
