Participates in 5 items
Born in 1954 in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, Paul Di Filippo discovered fandom in 1973 by attending his first convention, Torcon II. He went to Rhode Island College, where in 1976 he met Deborah Newton, his life partner ever since. In 1982, his long-simmering desire to become a professional writer could no longer be denied. Adopting Ray Bradbury's advice to write a story a week, he did so for a year or more without selling any. Then he began to click, landing two near-simultaneous sales. In the subsequent four decades he's amassed over 200 short fiction sales, and accumulated them, plus his novels, into over forty books.
