Preston Dennett has worked as a carpet cleaner, fast-food worker, data entry clerk, bookkeeper, landscaper, singer, actor, writer, radio host, television consultant, teacher, UFO researcher, ghost hunter and more. But his true love has always been speculative fiction.
From 1986 to 1992, he submitted eleven stories to the contest and received eleven rejections. Also rejected by other venues, Preston quit writing speculative fiction. Instead he wrote nonfiction about UFOs. Since then, he has written twenty-two books and more than 100 articles about UFOs and the paranormal.
Seventeen years later, in 2009, realizing his dream of being a science fiction writer was slipping away, he started writing and submitting stories again. He has since sold thirty-seven stories to various venues including Allegory, Andromeda Spaceways, Bards and Sages, Black Treacle, Cast of Wonders, The Colored Lens, Daily Science Fiction, Grievous Angel, Kzine, Perihelion Science Fiction, Sci Phi Journal, Stupefying Stories, T. Gene Davis’ Speculative Blog, and more, including several anthologies. Since these publications all paid less than professional rates, he was still qualified to win at the time that he entered. He earned twelve honorable mentions in the Writers of the Future Contest before winning second place in the first quarter of 2018. It was his forty-seventh submission to the contest, showing that if you want something bad enough, all you have to do is keep trying, and never give up. The story that follows is his third professional sale.
Preston currently resides in southern California where he spends his days looking for new ways to pay his bills and his nights exploring the farthest edges of the universe. You can visit him virtually at https://prestondennett.weebly.com/
Jonathan Womack began leaving his body on the night of Oct. 6th, 1965, at the age of 6, after watching an episode of Lost in Space. These episodes continued and a year later, after watching an episode of the new Filmation cartoon, “The New Adventures of Superman”, Jonathan began donning the metaphysical cape and leotards for his astral travels.
In 1999, Jonathan’s guide tapped his shoulder and urged him to write about his experiences. Jonathan chose to imbue his travels into a fiction novel, (A Cry for a Hero, Top Honors – Hollywood Book Festival), basing the villain on a little known terrorist, Osama Bin Laden. Jonathan was writing the climactic ending when 9/11 struck. The book was shelved for a time due the nature of the plot.
In 2003, Jonathan formed his publishing company, Charles River Press, to publish his books as well as the stories of other talented writers. Jonathan’s 2nd novel, Old Souls, (Best SciFi, New England Book Festival) revolves around the notion that ancient, advanced Martians escaped a calamity and traveled to earth. Jonathan’s latest novel, “Ram I Am”, is based on the work of Richard C. Hoagland and Rupert Murdoch (The villain is named Torque).
In addition to his 50+ years of OBE’s, Jonathan is a licensed electronic technician, a Media/IT tech, an author and publisher, book editor, graphic designer (Photoshop, Illustrator), webmaster, video editor and 3D modeler. He comes from a musical family and has played guitar for 50 years.
