Wayne Carey grew up reading such authors as Edgar Rice Burroughs, H. Rider Haggard, Talbot Mundy, and Robert E. Howard, providing the desire to write from an early age. He has worked as a pharmaceutical research scientist and a science teacher. He is the author of THE NANON FACTOR — a young adult contemporary science fiction thriller from Leo Publishing — and has appeared in a variety of anthologies including LEGENDS OF NEW PULP FICTION. For Airship 27, Wayne has written two adventures featuring Haggard’s hero from KING SOLOMON’S MINES: ALLAN QUATERMAIN AND THE BEAST MEN and ALLAN QUATERMAIN AND THE LIGHTNING BIRD. Airship 27 has also released his novel of Civil War reenactors caught in a supernatural battle: COMPANY OF SHADOWS. Wayne and his wife Brenda live in the wilds of Central Pennsylvania with their three children, who provide a great deal of inspiration for his work. He may be contacted at wgcarey@1791.com.
