Mike Rimar has matured. He no longer writes witty bios with clever puns. He has stopped comparing his two daughters to pets, especially after the cease and desist order. He sees nothing funny about writing science fiction, fantasy, and some horror, although many of his stories might be considered humorous, and purposefully humorous, not this-is-so-bad-it’s-funny kind of humorous. As proof, his story, A Bunny Hug for Karl, was nominated for the 2014 Prix Aurora for the best in Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy. He was also an associate publisher of Bundoran Press and co-editor of the anthologies, Second Contacts, for which he won the 2016 Aurora award and Lazurus Risen, for which he was nominated for the 2017 Aurora. He has been published in OSC’s InterGalactic Medicine Show, Writers of the Future XXI, On Spec, and Tesseracts 15, all serious publications despite having the occasional humorous story.
