Gary Poole has been a regular presence on the convention scene since he was a teenager back in the mid-80s. A consulting editor for Baen Books, his latest anthology is "Voices of The Fall", set in New York Times bestselling author John Ringo's "Black Tide Rising" zombie apocalypse universe.
He is also the founder of both the very popular Robot Battles competitions and the Southern Fandom Resource Guide online convention calendar. And if that wasn't enough, he hosts a morning radio show and is the managing editor for an alternative weekly newspaper here in Chattanooga.
He has spent the better part of the last thirty years working in print, radio and television, has been writing and performing music even longer, and dabbles now and then in theater and film as a screenwriter, composer and actor, though thankfully not all at the same time.
