Ten Thousand Thunders



Brian Trent is a writer specializing in science fiction, fantasy, horror, and history. He is a futurist with a keen interest in the past.  His writing career formally began in journalism. He published works on everything from longevity research in mice to artificial intelligence in Switzerland; from the rise of surveillance cities to the “disinformation age” of the world wide web; from the search for life on Mars to the question of whether human society will survive tomorrow’s Internet-of-Everything. He has gone undercover with the skeptics movement and covered politics, social media, video gaming, and more.  Mostly, and perhaps unsurprisingly, his interest is science-fiction. In the ideas, people, and places that may yet arrive. His work regularly appears in the world’s top fiction markets, including Analog, Fantasy & Science Fiction, The Year’s Best Military and Adventure SF, Nature Futures, Galaxy’s Edge, Pseudopod, Escape Pod, and much more.
