David Kopaska-Merkel edits and publishes Dreams and Nightmares, a magazine of science fiction and fantasy poetry. By day he describes rocks for the state of Alabama and by night tries to avoid tubes of paint and brushes left around the house by three resident artists. His magazine, and some of his writing, can be found at places like www.dailycabal.com, genremall.com, and spechouseofpoetry.com.
