Dr. Andrew Burt (www.ReAnimus.com), former Vice President of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Inc., has published dozens of short stories and one novel, just completed his second (Termination of Species); runs Preditors & Editors (defanging scammers who prey on writers); and herds Critters (www.critique.org), the first writers workshop on the web (specializing in science fiction, fantasy, & horror, as well as other writing genres, art, scripts, comics, music, etc.), also home to other writers' resources, such as the Black Holes response time tracker and other fun tools for writers (and readers). He's CEO of ReAnimus Press and its newly acquired subsidiary, the Hugo-winning Advent Publishers, helping authors such as Ben Bova, Robert Silverberg, Ursula K. Le Guin, Ed Bryant, and many others breathe life back into their great books on author-friendly terms. Outside of science fiction, he's been a computer science professor (research in networking, security, privacy, and free-speech/social issues), founder of Nyx.net, the world's oldest Internet service provider, and a technology consultant/author/speaker. For a hobby, he constructs solutions to all the world's problems. Fortunately — nobody listens.
