About Tim Niederriter
As you've no doubt gathered, I write books of science fiction, fantasy, and combinations of the two for fun and novelty.
I'm the son of two physicists from Pennsylvania, transplanted to Minnesota. My parents read me the Hobbit (repeatedly) at a young age. The math adds up. I love both far-flung science fiction and epic fantasy of all kinds.
Diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder at a young age, I've always surrounded myself with fictional worlds. I studied writing and literature at Gustavus Adolphus College and have a strong interest in history and politics as well.
I co-host the roleplaying game podcast "Of Mooks and Monsters" and talk with other authors each week on my other podcast, "Alive After Reading."

Thirty-five awesome stories - one kick ass meme that started it all.
It started as a joke. Storm Area 51 they said. They can't stop all of us they said. But all laughter stopped when the U.S. Air Force mobilized the reserves and pulled out the big guns.
However, relentless mockery and derision by the media and the powers that be pushed the weebs and alien enthusiasts too far. What else were they supposed to do? They put on their big girl panties and showed up, determined to find out exactly what secrets were hidden behind the walls of the clandestine government facility.
Are you brave enough to buy this anthology today? If you are find out what the government wants to keep hidden.
