James Patrick Kelly- Rocket Man




Above: Photo by John Hession His science fiction chops were developed in the 1970s and are imbued with the psychedelic fervor of that era. In recent years James Patrick Kelly has envisioned a future where science has unlocked matter and biology, and reality itself has become the ultimate hallucinogen. He won Hugo Awards in 1995 and 1999 for the novelettes “Think Like a Dinosaur,” and "10^16 to 1." He just nabbed a 2006 Nebula Award for his novella “Burn,” which he recorded in his own voice and distributed via podcast. His work with Creative Commons licensing and online distribution gained the attention of online book site Audible.com, and he’s now the host of his own for-pay podcast magazine, “James Patrick Kelly’s StoryPod.” Oh, and on the local front, he just won his second Fellowship Grant from the N.H. State Council on the Arts, so it looks like the future is in good hands.
