About Albert Wendland
Albert Wendland has made a career out of his life-long interests in science fiction—and novels, poetry, art, photography, film, and travel. He has taught literature, popular fiction, and writing at Seton Hill University, where he was director of its MFA in Writing Popular Fiction (the program famous for its exclusive attention on genre writing). After the release of his SF novel, "The Man Who Loved Alien Landscapes," he published a prequel, "In a Suspect Universe," and now has released a collection of poetry "written" by the protagonist of those two books called "Temporary Planets for Transitory Days." He will follow these with at least two sequels. He also works in—and loves—astronomy, geology, landscape photography, SF painting, film studies, graphic novels, classic SF, and “the sublime.”

Award-winning authors Michael A. Arnzen and Heidi Ruby Miller gather the voices of today's top genre writers and writing instructors alongside their published students. Many Genres, One Craft fosters the writing process in a way that focuses almost exclusively on writing the novel. Using a compilation of instructional articles penned by well-known authors affiliated with Seton Hill University's acclaimed MFA program in Writing Popular Fiction, the book emphasizes how to write genre novels and commercially appealing fiction. The articles are modeled after actual "learning modules" that have successfully taught students in the program how to reach a wider audience for over a decade.
Award-winning and best-selling contributors from a spectrum of genres and literary careers offer their sage advice, including David Morrell, Tess Gerritsen, Victoria Thompson, Nancy Kress, Shelley Bates, Maria V. Snyder, Jason Jack Miller, Thomas Monteleone, Susan Mallery, and over fifty other published authors, teachers, and alumni, as well as special guest agents and editors who have visited the program. Divided into three parts--Craft, Genre, and The Writer's Life--the book provides advice on everything from point-of-view to writing media tie-in novels to marketing romance, all from writers who have actually done it.
In this planetary adventure of mystery and romance, Mykol Ranglen, space-wanderer from The Man Who Loved Alien Landscapes, finds the planet of his dreams and the future he desires. But he learns they come at too high a price.
The terrors of a mysterious alien “Blight,” ancient warring galactic civilizations, and the hidden surprises of the universe itself, conspire to stop him. He must decide just how far he’ll go to keep what he’s discovered. But what he learns about this world, and what he has to do to save it—and himself—will haunt him forever.
“Working with the psychological implications of identity, transformation, and perception, Wendland tangles up the characters and worlds in loops of time and space….The resolution of his emotional and intellectual dilemmas of dealing with Alchera and the Airafane gives a solid sense of closure that new and returning readers appreciate.”—Publishers Weekly
“…an engrossing and ever-expanding world full of both breathtaking beauty and cosmic horror. In A Suspect Universe is sure to please not only fans of his earlier work but any general sf reader looking to indulge in their sense of wonder.” —Booklist
