Hunter Lambright, the author, is a comic book fanatic in the totally generic state of Indiana. He got his start reading comics at a ripe, er, young age when he’d already read everything age-appropriate in the house and library, so his dad opened up his longbox of Uncanny X-Men issues, starting with issue #179. Ever since then, he was hooked. Now, reading an awfully large amount of comic books per week, Hunter is also the editor-in-chief of a Marvel comics fan-fiction website at Marvel Omega and will have his first short story published in Dead West: 13 Tales of Murder and Mayhem this summer from Bandersnatch Books. When he’s not cruising the internet, writing, or reading, Hunter runs, spends time with his family, and enjoys long walks on the beach, if there were a beach anywhere near him.
