The next in our Spotlight series, in conjunction with our current Kickstarter campaign for Fantastic Novels, is author Aaron Rosenberg. If I’m not mistaken, I first met Aaron at one Farpoint or another. We didn’t get to chat much at first because we were both veteran dealers at that point manning our respective tables. Aaron is one of the masterminds behind Crazy8 Press, which just celebrated their tenth anniversary.
Aaron is a veteran author of both media tie-in and gaming content, having won several awards for his work. He is also prolific in his original fiction, novels, nonfiction, children’s fiction, short stories, and articles. Franchises he has written for are Star Trek, Shadowrun, Eureka, World of Warcraft, and Stargate Atlantis, among others.
Aaron joined the eSpec list of authors in 2015 with a story in The Side of Evil, and he has continued to delight us ever since. Below is a growing list of the titles he has written or contributed to for eSpec Books. Yeti Left Home, the novel we are currently funding, is the first in a planned series of cryptid-in-the-city novels, and I can assure you it is like nothing you have seen before!
Aaron Rosenberg is the author of the best-selling DuckBob SF comedy series, the Relicant Chronicles epic fantasy series, the Dread Remora space-opera series, and—with David Niall Wilson—the O.C.L.T. occult thriller series. Aaron’s tie-in work contains novels for Star Trek, Warhammer, World of WarCraft, Stargate: Atlantis, Shadowrun, Eureka, Mutants & Masterminds, and more. He has written children’s books (including the original series STEM Squad and Pete and Penny’s Pizza Puzzles, the award-winning Bandslam: The Junior Novel, and the #1 best-selling 42: The Jackie Robinson Story), educational books on a variety of topics, and over seventy roleplaying games (such as the original games Asylum, Spookshow, and Chosen, work for White Wolf, Wizards of the Coast, Fantasy Flight, Pinnacle, and many others, and both the Origins Award-winning Gamemastering Secrets and the Gold ENnie-winning Lure of the Lich Lord). He is the co-creator of the ReDeus series, and a founding member of Crazy 8 Press. Aaron lives in New York with his family.
