Lou Antonelli

     Author


Lou Antonelli started writing fiction in middle age; his first story was published in 2003 when he was 46. He's had 115 short stories published in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, India and Portugal in venues such as Asimov's Science Fiction, Jim Baen's Universe, Tales of the Talisman, Andromeda Spaceways In-Flight Magazine, Greatest Uncommon Denominator (GUD), Daily Science Fiction, Buzzy Mag, and Omni Reboot, among many others.

His collections include "Fantastic Texas" published in 2009; "Texas & Other Planets" published in 2010; and "The Clock Struck None" and "Letters from Gardner", both published in 2014. His debut novel, the retro-futurist alternate history "Another Girl, Another Planet", was released in 2016 by WordFire Press.

His story "Great White Ship", originally published in Daily Science Fiction, was a 2013 finalist for the Sidewise Award for alternate history. His short story "On a Spiritual Plain", originally published in Sci Phi Journal, was a finalist for the Hugo award in 2015.

His first professional science fiction short story, "A Rocket for the Republic" (Asimov's Science Fiction Sept. 2005) was the last story accepted by Editor Gardner Dozois before he retired after 19 years.

"The Yellow Flag" - his 100th published short story (Sci-Phi Journal Aug. 2016) - set the record for all-time fastest turnaround in genre fiction. It was written, submitted and accepted between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. on May 6, 2015

He is a two-time Hugo nominee (Short Story, Best Related Work) in 2015, and 2017 finalist for the Dragon Award in Alternate History. A Massachusetts native, Antonelli moved to Texas in 1985 and is married to Dallas native Patricia (Randolph) Antonelli. They have three adopted furbaby children, Millie, Sugar and Peltro Antonelli.
