It is with great pride and honor that we announce Convolution 2012: The Next Step's first Guest of Honor--Steve Berman, author and editor extraordinaire!

Steve Berman sold his first short story when he was seventeen years old. Since then, he has sold almost a hundred articles, essays and tales, many of them dealing with queer speculative fiction. His novel, Vintage: A Ghost Story, was a finalist for the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy, and is on the American Library Association's recommended reading list for gay teens. His short stories have been featured in Strange Horizons as well as such anthologies as Phantom (edited by Paul Tremblay and Sean Wallace), Best Gay Stories (edited by Peter Dube), Teeth: Vampire Tales (edited by Ellen Datlow & Terri Windling), Brave New Love: 13 Dystopian Tales of Desire (edited by Paula Guran), and Year's Best Dark Fantasy & Horror (edited by Paula Guran). He has edited a dozen anthologies, three of which have been finalists for the Lambda Literary Awards.

Born in Philadelphia, Steve Berman has been a resident of southern New Jersey (the only state in the Union with an official devil) for many years. He has a Master's degree in Liberal Studies and has worked in the publishing industry for decades, as a senior book buyer at an academic and then trade wholesaler, in the marketing department of a small Jewish publisher, and, in 2001, as the founder of Lethe Press. He regularly travels around the country speaking about queer issues and themes in young adult and speculative literature.

Please join us in welcoming Steve Berman to San Cipriano!
