Today on the Speculative Fiction Cantina we are pleased to welcome writers Presley E. Acuna and Michael January.
|Presley E. Acuna|
Presley E. Acuna writes unconventional thrillers, based in reality, but which take unexpected turns into the realms of fantasy, magical realism, science fiction and horror. His aim is to engage the reader in an engrossing mystery or adventure, while simultaneously using the situation to explore the deeper meanings of the ideas behind the story. He also writes political satires, which can also take turns into the fantastical. When he is not writing, he is working as a systems engineer on the dot com frontier. He is also a musician, and formerly a member of the Supertones. He is a born and raised New Yorker, currently living in Brooklyn, but also enjoys spending time at his cabin, deep in the woods of western Massachusetts, with his wife and the host of critters that always manage to find their way into the house.

Michael January is screenwriter for film and television as well as a travel writer and photographer. His first published print book series, Favorite Castles is the result of two interests, seeing the world through a visual eye and telling stories. The author began his travel writing with a search for castles and plot ideas in while in production on a film in Europe. His travels have since taken him to a wide swath of countries and locations. And he now turns his imagination and passion for far away times and places to novels, with his first The Secret Memoirs of Mary Shelley and more to follow.
