Marion G. Harmon picked up a Masters of History degree because he likes stories. He resides in Las Vegas, where he dabbles in various aspects of financial planning while trying to get the people in his head onto the page so they’ll stop pestering him.

Addendum: M.G.Harmon still lives in Las Vegas, but has ceased telling other people how to invest their money to become a "professional author," whatever that is. He has written nine books, all about Astra and Company. They still won't leave him alone.

A Merry Christmas To All.

“Let the heavens rejoice and the earth be glad before the Lord, for He comes.” I don’t often speak of my faith. Not because I feel pressure not to, even in these times of “culture war” (and I really hate that phrase), but because I have a wide readership. I am a member of the … More A Merry Christmas To All.

Marion Harmon answered a question about Wearing the Cape:
Wearing the Cape by Marion G. Harmon
Both deal with the affect of superhuman powers on society, both touch on dark themes, but the Wearing the Cape setting is much more optimistic than Worm's. Hope/Astra is also a much more optimistic (and naive) person than Taylor, although I suspect t See Full Answer

Quotes by Marion G. Harmon  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is you're stupid and make bad decisions.”
Marion G. Harmon, Ronin Games

“The ancient Greeks considered love a mental illness that led to suicide, homicide, betrayal, war, all sorts of fun.”
Marion G. Harmon

“Whenever somebody asks me to define what a hero is, I remember Latane and Darley’s experiment, staging epileptic fits in front of one, two, or three observers. A solitary observer will help immediately if he’s going to help at all, but the larger the crowd the longer the delay. It’s the Bystander Effect: the wider the diffusion of responsibility, the greater the impulse to let someone else go first. The hero goes first.”
Marion G. Harmon, Countermoves

“My dinner party,' Miles grated. 'It's just breaking up.' And sinking. All souls feared lost.
Lois McMaster Bujold, A Civil Campaign

“Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.”
Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time
