Tom Underberg.jpg - click to view - mousewheel to zoom
Tom Underberg lives and works in Evanston, which is basically Chicago if you zoom the map out far enough. He's had a variety of jobs that sound more interesting in a list than they were in real life: bartender, book binder, dishwasher, consultant. Before he started work on his first novel, he published short fiction in magazines like Weird Tales and The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. He's been claiming he's no more than 10 to 15 thousand words from finishing the first draft of that first novel for a while now, so hopefully by the time we read this bio at Tuesday Funk, the book will be done.
