Syd Logsdon escaped an Oklahoma farm into science fiction, then escaped to Michigan State, the Navy, and the University of Chicago. He became addicted to writing novels, which led to a decade of full time writing and part time starvation, with a second MA in History thrown in. Next came thirty years of part time writing and full time teaching of middle school science. His first publication was in the last issue of Galaxy. He is the author of Jandrax and A Fond Farewell to Dying. The latter also appeared in German translation.
But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.
