Featured Writer
Lawrence Schimel

by L. Schimel

Lawrence Schimel could be called king of the anthology. He's widely published in multiple genres. The modest bio he's offered here is just a small representation of his work. You might think he's been writing for many decades, but a web source reveals his birth year as 1971. Lawrence Schimel's writing credentials are indeed--highly impressive.




I'm 29 years old, born in New York City, graduated from Yale University, write poetry, essays, and fiction in a wide variety of genres and for all ages from kids to adults. One of his latest works is geared to writers. 

My work has appeared in over 150 anthologies, in many different genres, for both adults and children, including among others:

Random House Book of Science Fiction...

The Random House Treasury of Light Verse

The Mammoth Book of Fairy Tales (Carroll & Graf)

The Mammoth Book of Comic Fantasy (Carroll & Graf)


The Chronicles of the Holy Grail (Carroll & Graf)

Lives : Poems About Famous Americans (HarperCollins)

Spectacular Science : A Book of Poems (Simon & Schuster)

Weird Tales from Shakespeare (DAW Books)

Shakespearean Detectives (Carroll & Graf)

Christmas Ghosts : An Anthology (DAW Books)
