Dan Erickson

Costumer / Panelist Guest / Writer

In the blue corner, standing at 6’3” and weighing in at 245 pounds, the Deranged Man from the Desert, the redheaded stepchild of science fiction, the writer that articulates your desires and scares you with the coming future, DAN ERICKSON! Publishing on Amazon.com and daringly doing so with an editor and a spellchecker, he comes to SoonerCon for another year of magic, mystery, questions and answers, and too many giggles for a funeral.

Fresh off publishing Divine Fire II: Mortal Coil and voicing Audibles of all his works, Erickson is here to talk about the publishing industry, social changes, sexual outlaws, and the vibrant world of Poetry Slam. He trained and fought as a cage fighter as his midlife crisis and studies with awe the world of science and sexuality. Come sit next to him, you won’t be bored.
