Alex Pearl is trying to be an author and a doctor of psychology at the same time. It's going okay, but the endeavor has killed him at least twice. The funerals were nice, but ultimately brief and anticlimactic after he leapt out of the coffin to get back to work. He mostly writes horror, but also writes humor and sci-fi stuff, due to liking robots and severely disliking taking himself seriously. He has self-published a number of anthologies, and has been professionally published in the science fiction anthology "Humans Wanted" by Vivian Caethe. Updates Thursday with new stories!
