Rev DiCerto is a writer, musician, and editor. He is the author of a number of novels in the fantasy, urban fantasy, science fiction, and steampunk genres.
Rev’s fantasy and urban fantasy work often centers around Norse mythology. He has published numerous short stories in a variety of science fiction and fantasy anthologies. He recently published the novel El Paladino, a weird western set in a dystopian future of out-of-control climate change. If you’re looking for a story with a lot of punch, and a decent amount of foul language, this one’s for you!
Rev’s first published novel was Fire Aloft, published with co-author Duncan Eagleson. His favorite experience as a writer (aside from seeing Fire Aloft published) is having his short story “Animal Attraction” rejected by a horror publication. The rejection letter from the editor included the sentences “I absolutely loved this story” and “Unfortunately, it was just too disturbing for our publication.” “Animal Attraction” and its various sequels and spinoffs are tales of an unsavory Victorian-era scientist named Hobbes; you can find the full collection in the book The Preternaturalist.
Rev’s short story Losing Amelia, which appeared in the Decopunk fiction anthology, was a 2016 finalist for the Sidewise Award for Alternate History.
As a musician, Rev is a singer, lead guitarist, and songwriter. He wrote and recorded two CDs of original music with his former band, Sol Dog. His band Kindred Soul recently released an album, Taking Wing, which can be sampled here and bought just about anywhere you want.
