R. Daniel Lester reads, writes and lives in Vancouver, BC, aka Terminal City. Over the last 15 years, as a keen apprentice in the story trade, he’s consumed a lot of coffee (a mandatory requirement, according to the manual), written himself into and out of countless corners, added many words to blank pages (including “The Janitor Cometh,” a semi-finalist in last year’s Deathmatch), released a novel, Die, Famous! and made tens of dollars along the way. Most recently, his short story, “Some Say the World Will End in Fire,” was published in the Winter 2015 issue of Pulp Literature.
