Nicholas Ahlhelm has let his love for superheroes as a concept pretty much overwhelm his good sense. He has been a fan of super-powered prose fiction since he discovered Wild Cards at twelve. Since then, he has expanded his reading and viewing to cover superheroes through every means he can find, whether comics, prose fiction, movies, television, or transmedia sources. At the same time, he started to craft his own superhero narratives, developing the ongoing Quadrant Universe while dabbling in pulp and sports fiction.
He lives in Eastern Iowa with his wife and two daughters, in an increasingly small house.
Nicholas Ahlhelm is the writer of the novels Freedom Patton and Living Legends. His work can be seen everyday on the story blog Walking Shadows as well as in anthologies from Pro Se Press, Metahuman Press and Airship 27.
