Rob S. Rice has long had a fascination with the histories of war, technology, and always the sea. He has delivered papers before the American Philological Association, lectured at Annapolis and has taught subjects from Mythology to Roman History. Before all THAT, he won the 1st Del Rey ‘Writers of Tomorrow’ contest in 1983, the bug bit hard and early, and has never quite let him go.
His articles on the U.S. Navy appear in the respected Reader’s Guide to Military History. He also wrote sections of Fighting Techniques of the Ancient World, Fighting Techniques of the Early Modern Era, and other non-fiction. He has three books of historical fantasy out from The Esterhazy Press: Archival: Most Secret; Darkness in the Mirror, and The Chronicles of Loquacious, Centaur, of Rhodes.
Dr. Rice is an accomplished marksman, a published poet and a street actor and historical consultant for the Colorado Renaissance Festival in Larkspur. He is the cherishing owner of Big Dodge, his 1970 Dodge Dart, and Winston, a 1984 Volkswagen Westfalia Camper.
He lives near Denver, Colorado.
