Bernie Mojzes (brni), author of "On Arid Seas"
It all started with a throwaway comment on the idea of Alice in Wonderland themed erotica - "You know, caterpillars could be the new cephalopods." That story, Bernie's first published erotic work, appears in Circlet Press' Like a Vorpal Blade. It was a quick ride to Depravity from there; Circlet is also publishing his stories in Like a Treasure Found and Whispers in Darkness. It's not all naughty bits, of course. Bernie's also got a short, illustrated book entitled The Evil Gazebo, and short stories out or forthcoming in a variety of magazines and anthologies, including Daily Science Fiction, Crossed Genres, In an Iron Cage, Dead Souls, and Spells & Swashbucklers. In his copious free time, he co-edits The Journal of Unlikely Entomology. For more sordid details, please feel free to visit www.kappamaki.com.
