Taco Tuesday got off to a good start…

Ron Toland grew up in West Texas, where he learned to love libraries and hate cactus (it knows what it did).

He’s written supplements for the Conan RPG, science articles for NASA’s Public Affairs office, and way too much code to ever trust a computer.

His first short story, “Wishr,” was published this May in Galaxy’s Edge magazine.

He currently lives in San Diego, CA, with his wife, two pups, and as many green things as they can coax from the sandy soil.
