Jim Johnson was born about the same time Apollo XII landed on the moon (and has always been kinda spacy) and shares a birthday with the Kindle. He is the author of the Pistols and Pyramids weird western series and the Potomac Shadows urban fantasy series. He's also written a bunch of other stuff in and around the SFF genres and pen and paper RPGs. He's currently a freelance writer and developer for Modiphius's Star Trek Adventures RPG.

In rare moments when he's not writing or publishing, Jim plays board games and card games, eats pizza with his toddler, and makes a brilliant bowl of popcorn. You can learn more about him and his writing at www.SCRIBEINETI.com.

This gives my subconscious a chance to think about the problem, and usually it'll work itself out and I'll get back to writing.(less)
