James R. Stratton

Jim Stratton is a chameleon. By day, he is a mild-mannered government lawyer, and lives with his wife and children in southern Delaware. He began writing his tales 20+ years ago, and has been forging his dark alter ego of genre fiction author through publication of his tales and poetry in roughly fifty venues over the years, including nine appearances in the various incarnations of Nth Degree Magazine. Most recently, he has appeared in the anthologies Dead Souls (2009), Rum & Runestones (2010), Fantastic Futures 13 (2013) and Bad Ass Fairies IV: It’s Elemental (2014), and will be appearing in the next issues of Nth Degree Magazine (#27) and the Best of Nth Degree Anthology due later this year. His final reveal will come with publication of his novel, The Dokkalfar’s Ploy, when he will emerge into the light, triumphant.
