Geek Mountain State is pleased to launch the third year of the Vermont SF Writer’s Series with VT SF 3.01, our next reading event, which will take place on March 10th at Phoenix Books, at 6:30pm.

The writers included in this event will be Kristin Dearborn, Mike Luoma, Rachel Carter, and Asher Ellis, who will read short excerpts from their works.


Mike Luoma writes and publishes science fiction and comic books, produces the weekly “Glow-in-the-Dark Radio” podcast, and he’s the Music Director and hosts middays on “The Point”, Vermont’s Independent Radio Network. His science fiction novel Vatican Assassin introduced “BC”, a killer for the New catholic Church. BC’s story further unfolds in Vatican Ambassador and Vatican Abdicator. Mike now writes the adventures of Alibi Jones, BC’s son: Alibi Jones, Alibi Jones and The Sunrise of Hur, Alibi Jones and the Time War of The Devrizium, the comic book The Adventures of Alibi Jones, and his latest novel, Alibi Jones and The Hornet’s Nest.

Asher Ellis is the author of, The Remedy, his debut horror novel from Full Fathom Five Digital. He currently lives in his hometown of Ludlow, Vermont (where there are far fewer cannibals than his novel may suggest.) A graduate of the Stonecoast MFA in Creative Writing program at the University of Southern Maine, he has written award winning short stories, plays, and films. When Asher isn’t killing college students on the pages of his fiction, he teaches them as a creative writing and English professor at Colby-Sawyer College in New London, New Hampshire.

If it screams, squelches, or bleeds, Kristin Dearborn has probably written about it. She revels in comments like “But you look so normal…how do you come up with that stuff?” A life-long New Englander, she aspires to the footsteps of the local masters, Messrs. King and Lovecraft. When not writing or rotting her brain with cheesy horror flicks (preferably creature features!) she can be found scaling rock cliffs or zipping around Vermont on a motorcycle, or gallivanting around the globe. Her first novel, Trinity, was released in 2012. A novella, “Sacrifice Island” was released in October 2013. For more information please visit
