Dave S. Koster
To his surprise, Dave mostly writes satirical fantasy and reckons himself pretty good at it. He also dabbles in satirical sci-fi. Dave is a research analyst by day and likes a good database nearly as much as an affordable bottle of blended scotch. Which is to say, more than you might expect and for reasons nobody else seems to understand. Dave is an Alaskan. He grew up there and still lives there and won't leave unless forced. He's a species of urban Alaskan that likes salmon, sheefish, and caribou curry, but prefers to stand by while real outdoorsmen/women do the all mucking about in the woods with mosquitos and such-like. That said, he absolutely won't turn up the opportunity to process the odd road-killed moose with friends. In addition to living in the shallowest possible reaches of the Alaskan wilderness, Dave enjoys cooking, growing potatoes in trash cans, watching his family raise ducks, volunteering as a mentor with FIRST Robotics, and talking to his trees, which are bur oaks.
