ALAN SMALE writes alternate and twisted history, and hard SF. His novella of a Roman invasion of ancient America, “A Clash of Eagles”, won the Sidewise Award, and his novels set in the same universe, CLASH OF EAGLES (2015), EAGLE IN EXILE (2016), and EAGLE AND EMPIRE (2017), are available from Penguin Random House/Del Rey. Alan has also sold over forty short stories to Asimov’s, Abyss & Apex, Writers of the Future, and other magazines and anthologies. His Roman baseball collaboration with Rick Wilber, THE WANDERING WARRIORS, came out from WordFire Press in 2020, and HOT MOON, his alternate-Apollo thriller set entirely on and around the Moon, will be published by CAEZIK Fantasy and SF in 2022.

Alan grew up in Yorkshire, England, and earned degrees in Physics and Astrophysics from Oxford University. By day he performs astronomical research into black holes and neutron stars at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, with over a hundred published academic papers; by night he sings bass with high-energy vocal band The Chromatics, and is co-creator of their educational AstroCappella project, spreading astronomy through a cappella in schools nationwide.
