B. Morris Allen grew up in a house full of books that traveled the world. Nowadays, they’re ebooks, and lighter to carry, but they’re still multiplying. He’s been a biochemist, an activist, and a lawyer, and now works as a foreign aid consultant. When he’s not roaming foreign countries fighting corruption, he’s on the Oregon coast, chatting with seals. In the occasional free moment, he works on his own speculative stories of love and disaster.

Shadow, my graphic novel with Uwe Carow, should be out early in the new year, from Red Bug Books. It's a combination of two ideas I'd had floating around for a while - telling the story of the minor characters that pass through epic quests, and telling a story not through positive description, but through gaps.

The result is a story that follows in the footsteps of epic heroes - shown through the people and places they leave behind. When another writer suggested I have it illustrated, I found Uwe, and he took it far beyond that, to a true graphic novel.
