My pen name is Dan Reid Shamin. I am a science fiction writer living in Minneapolis. I just had my first play produced for the 2004 Minnesota Fringe Festival. Woo Hoo. It's a sci-fi themed play set in the near future.

What sort of stories do you write? And if you have anything published, tell us about it (even if it's not SF.) We love to hear about all your successes.

Wrote and produced the original musical "The Collectors" for the 2010 Fringe Festival. Wrote and produced "The Judas Cradle" as a one act play for the 2004 Minnesota Fringe Festival.

What brings you to the SF Writers Meetup? Is there anything that you hope the group will do for you?

Sold another story to Pill Hill Press for anthology "Leather, Denim and Silver". One of my stories featured in "Northern Lights" an anthology of regional writers from Sam's Dot Publishing. My horror anthology "Parasitic Sands" an anthology I coedited is now available through LULU.

They will kick you into gear my lazy writer friend.

    Hi Dan! I'm thinking that Owly won't work for Meetup's site. Upload it to something like flikr or photobucket, and we'll be able to link to it. Or upload it to the main photo album in our meetup group.

    Aha! You nearly threw me off with your nom de plume.
    Hope you can come back again next month.

    Hey I saw that you are interested in writing and thought that you might like to check out the Twin Cities Book Festival. Not only is it free but there will be a ton of local authors there. It is at MCTC on October 11th and if you want more information check out the website at http://raintaxi.com/bookfest/­­.

    Dan Reid Shamin is a playwright, a cartoonist, and an excellent writer of old fashioned thrilling horror. Ask him to read you something, but not too late at night.
