More Information

This profile moderated by Kevin N. Haw.


Kevin Haw splits his time between writing computer code and speculative fiction. While the former pays better, he has found that the latter is much more fun and is not nearly as strict when it comes to punctuation. He makes his home just outside Los Angeles, California. His work has appeared in the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Jim Baen's Universe, Dragon, and Black Gate.   He also has a story appearing in Fantasist's "Bash Down the Door and Slice Open the Bad Guy" anthology.

Kevin invites you to read more of his work at his website.

Grand Tour

For a thorough-going change of pace, we next encounter newcomer Kevin N. Haw's delightful "The Grand Tour." Take a bunch of average American tourists and send them to Hell for their vacation tour.and wait for the postcards. The ending made me laugh out loud. I hope to see more from Haw.

Technical Exchange

... a nice story that combined engineering savvy with humorous office banter. The engineering made it science fiction, and the dry wit made it entertaining... a unique story and a brisk read.
