David Kopaska-Merkel describes rocks for the State of Alabama, and publishes Dreams and Nightmares, a magazine of SF and fantasy poetry. In 2006 a collaboration with Kendall Evans won the Rhysling Award of the Science Fiction Poetry Association. Flash fiction can be found at www.dailycabal.com. David lives in Alabama with artists and furry layabouts, in a centuried farmhouse with a yellow tin roof. David was born in Virginia, but has lived where the dentist is king as long as anywhere.
