Born amidst the sad cartoon of Nixon’s America and Evel Knievel’s ill-fated jump across the Snake River Canyon, Trevor Dodge spent big chunks of his childhood listening to Jackson 5 and Journey records. Everything was going fine until his next door neighbor brought over Queen’s News of the World album; the cover art depicted a massive robot squishing people between its fingers. Needless to say, twenty years of nightmares started immediately.
He has taught courses in fiction writing, comics and game studies at Illinois State University, Boise State University, Pacific Northwest College of Art and Clackamas Community College. He hosts the writing and creative arts podcast Possible Architect. His first novella, Yellow #10, was published in 2003; a collection of short fiction, Everyone I Know Lives On Roads, followed in 2006. His new collection, The Laws of Average, will appear later this year.
