Lyn Gerry: Lyn Gerry is the short story fiction editor of Silver Blade and is in the final stages of a slipstream novel that draws on her interests in medieval history, archery, horses and the environment. Upon graduation from the University of California with a BA in Creative Studies, she embarked on her first profession, putting the light in Jedi sabers and similar filmic pursuits. After a stint as a private investigator that she hoped would provide material for fiction, Lyn turned instead to fact: radio journalism including hosting, producing, writing, and editing a syndicated weekly program on current issues. In the mid-90’s, she saw the potential of the internet to sidestep the gatekeepers of communication, and was involved in pioneering a free, web-based distribution system for independent radio and podcasts. She’s always starting something or other, with an eye to afflicting the comfortable and comforting the afflicted.
