Scott Pearson was first published in 1987 with “The Mailbox,” a Minnesota Monthly Tamarack Award winner about an elderly farming couple. In the decades since, he has published a smattering of humor, poetry, short stories, and nonfiction, such as The Mosquito Book, which he coauthored with Scott Anderson and Tony Dierckins. His first mystery story, “Out of the Jacuzzi, Into the Sauna,” appeared in the 2007 anthology Resort to Murder. A Star Trek fan for over thirty-five years, Scott has had three Trek short stories published by Simon & Schuster: “Full Circle” in Strange New Worlds VII, “Terra Tonight” in Strange New Worlds 9, and “Among the Clouds” in The Sky’s the Limit. His first novel, Honor in the Night, was included in the Star Trek trade anthology Myriad Universes: Shattered Light, from Simon & Schuster's Gallery imprint. He has had poetry published in the online magazines Strange Horizons and Down in the Cellar, and compiled a Led Zeppelin discography for Whole Lotta Led Zeppelin: The Illustrated History of the Heaviest Band of All Time. Scott has edited such books as Tales from a Tin Can: The USS Dale from Pearl Harbor to Tokyo Bay, which received a starred review in Publishers Weekly, and Will to Murder: The True Story Behind the Crimes & Trials Surrounding the Glensheen Killings, which was featured on Dominick Dunne’s Power, Privilege, and Justice series on Court TV. Scott lives in St. Paul, Minnesota, with his wife, Sandra, and daughter, Ella.
