About the Author
Jak Koke's most recent novels are Stranger Souls, Clockwork Asylum, and Beyond the Pale – the trilogy of books which make up "The Dragon Heart Saga." Stranger Souls and Beyond the Pale both reached number one on the Locus Magazine bestseller list for game-related fiction.
His first novel, Dead Air, a stand-alone book in the Shadowrun® world, was published by Roc books in 1996 and it hit number four on the Locus list. Koke has also written a fantasy novel, Liferock, which will soon be published by FASA Corporation as part of its Earthdawn® series.
Both solo and in collaboration with Jonathan Bond, Koke has also sold short stories to AMAZING STORIES and PULPHOUSE: A FICTION MAGAZINE, and has contributed to several anthologies such as Rat Tales by Pulphouse, Young Blood by Zebra, and Talisman, an Earthdawn® anthology.
Koke invites you to visit his web site. He and his wife Seana, a marine microbiologist, live in California with their four-year-old daughter, Michaela.
Jak Koke has asked for removal of his wonderful story Morphosis, after a generous presence of over 14 years, for inclusion of the story in an upcoming print anthology. We wish him all the best with the story and his writing career.
