Stories to make you think

There’s a lot of variety here: Science fiction, steampunk, urban fantasy, high fantasy, weird western, even some alternate history. I don’t stick with any one genre, but I always hope to deliver plenty of action and leave you thinking. Enjoy!

Rev DiCerto is a writer and musician from central New York. He is the author of a number of novels in the fantasy, urban fantasy, science fiction, and steampunk genres. His fantasy and urban fantasy work often centers around Norse mythology, a topic that he has taught at various gatherings. He has published numerous short stories in a variety of science fiction and fantasy anthologies. He’s working on a set of books set in a dystopian future of out-of-control climate change, told as spaghetti westerns (kind of). Fire Aloft, written with coauthor Duncan Eagleson, is his first published novel.

Rev’s favorite experience as a writer (aside from getting Fire Aloft published) is having his short story “Animal Attraction” rejected by a horror publication. The rejection letter included the sentences “I absolutely loved this story” and “Unfortunately, it was just too disturbing for our publication.” That story, "Animal Attraction," is featured in his upcoming book, The Preternaturalist, a collection of dark steampunk/fantasy fiction about the hard-to-like scientist Doctor Daniel Hobbes. The book is coming soon, from Corvid Press.

As a musician Rev has written and recorded two CDs of original music for his former band, Sol Dog, and in December 2020 released a new CD, Taking Wing, with Kindred Soul, a band originally formed in Connecticut. In addition to songwriting, he is a lead singer and lead guitarist.
