Shane Halbach lives in Chicago with his wife and two kids, where he writes software by day and avoids writing stories by night. His fiction has appeared on Escape Pod, Redstone SF, Daily Science Fiction, and elsewhere. He blogs regularly at shanehalbach.com.
“Copy Machine” will also be included in FFO alumni (“The Land of Phantom Limbs”) Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam’s 2014 Art & Words Collaborative Show in Fort Worth, Texas. A visual artist will use “Copy Machine” as inspiration for a work of visual art, while Shane Halbach will write a flash fiction based on a separate work of visual art. Twenty-six total artists and writers will also participate. For more information, including submissions guidelines for next year’s show, visit www.bonniejostufflebeam.com/art-words-show/.
