Allison M. Dickson is the author of two published novels: Strings, a horror–thriller, and the dystopian epic, The Last Supper, the latter of which received a starred review in Publishers Weekly. She also has published nearly two dozen short stories covering both speculative and realistic realms. Her independently–produced Colt Coltrane series, featuring a detective and his robot sidekick in 1940s Los Angeles, has become a regular fixture at local comic conventions. When she isn’t writing, she’s usually gaming, catching up on her shows, or wandering the urban sprawl of Dayton, OH in search of great coffee and microbrew. Allison keeps a semi–regular blog full of ramblings at allisonmdickson.com.
