Scott Overton

With a long career as a radio morning show host, Scott’s first novel, the mystery/thriller Dead Air is set in the radio world (and was shortlisted for a Northern Lit Award in Ontario, Canada). But since then, all his writing has taken the reader to even stranger places, including the human bloodstream in his SF novel debut The Primus Labyrinth, a science fiction thriller that reviewers compare to Michael Crichton and Dan Brown. His novel Naïda chronicles a reluctant hero with an alien being living inside him. And his most recent novel The Dispossession of Dylan Knox describes the trials of three people thrown out of their own time and sharing a single body. Scott strongly believes that science fiction should involve compelling themes and important issues, along with memorable characters.

His short fiction has been published in magazines such as On Spec, AEscifi, Neo-opsis, Penumbra and anthologies including Future Visions 3, Casserole Diplomacy: The On Spec 25th Anniversary Anthology, Canadian Tales of the Fantastic, In Poe’s Shadow, and Tesseracts Sixteen: Parnassus Unbound.

More SF novels are on the way. In the meantime, Scott’s distractions from writing include scuba diving, music, and collector cars. He lives with his wife on a private island in Northern Ontario.
