“History, Aristotle says, represents things only as they are, while fiction represents them as they might be and ought to be.”

Richard Walsh

Richard Walsh is a part-time writer and full-time husband, father, and accountant. He lives with his family and a pack of basset hounds in the suburbs of Minneapolis and stays active with local politics, roleplaying games, and light (very light) jogging.

Richard is influenced by a wide variety of genre writers, most notably Cormac McCarthy, P.G. Wodehouse, Robert Heinlein, and Raymond Chandler. His worldview is fundamentally libertarian and subsidiarist, but the themes of his work often extend beyond questions of the individual and the state.

To date, Richard’s most prominent work is the Adventures of Seamus Tripp, which he coauthors with Jon Garett. The Adventures of Seamus Tripp is a book series suitable for readers of all ages. It combines humor, action, and adventure in a format that is exciting, literary, and good fun. Get a taste of the series for free with The Adventure of Seamus Tripp and the North Star Witch.

Michael DiBaggio

Michael is a Catholic voluntaryist who works full-time as a software developer, but his real passion is writing and worldbuilding. Along with his wife, Shell, he is the co-creator of the Ascension Epoch, an open content, collaborative fiction project released under Creative Commons license. The setting is one where the re-emergence of paranormal talents and the invasion of H.G. Wells’ Martians in the 19th century have led to a radically transformed present, often organized along stateless lines. Their work draws heavily upon classic public domain literature.

His most recent work, After Dark, follows the exploits and ethical struggles of a team of teenage superheroes. Other published Ascension Epoch books include Population of Loss, a collection of four short stories set during the Martian Invasion; Copper Knights and Granite Men, a superhero/occult adventure story based on the King in Yellow mythos; and House of Refuge, a tale of the free market ocean rescue service Atlantic Littoral, which won second place in the inaugural LFA/SFA Libertarian Short Story Contest in 2014.
