Red Alert! Red Alert!
Science Officer Scheckler detects a space-borne thingamajig!

The obligatory official bio goes like this…

Massachusetts author-artist Gregory Scheckler crafts science fiction stories and cartoony artworks. He loves both Star Trek and Star Wars and isn’t afraid to say so in public. These shows became gateway drugs into all that science fiction literature can be. When he’s not writing or arting, he and his wife can often be found skiing, hiking and biking the Berkshires.

“Terse writing, marvelous world building… An author to take note of. This is what Science fiction is supposed to be like. Recommended.” (D. Bayly, Amazon reader)

This Scheckler guy’s done stuff, right?

Right. His writing has been featured with World Weaver Press; Winglet Books; Vermicious; Inklings; Fifty Word Fiction; The Advocate; the North Adams Transcript; the Berkshire Eagle; the Berkshire Review: an International Journal of the Arts; the Suruga Bai Literary Festival; the North County Perp; Painter’s Table Magazine; The Mind’s Eye Liberal Arts Journal; and Thought & Action: Journal of the National Education Association. In addition to the novelettes in Water Taxi in a River of Vampire Fish, and Moon Dust Infinity, he’s written several novels and short stories (coming soon!) Why not try one for free?

Yup, he’s both an artist and an author…

It’s true. See some examples of pictures here. Scheckler’s been exhibiting professionally since the early 90’s. His artworks were in exhibits with Ferrin Gallery; Kolok Gallery; Gallery 51; Metro One Gallery; Sivertson Gallery; the Soo Rye Art Gallery; Greylock Arts; as well as at museums such as the Duluth Art Institute; Utah Museum of Fine Arts; One West Art Center; the Boyden Gallery at St. Mary’s College of Maryland; the Bennington Museum in Vermont, and the Berkshire Museum in Massachusetts. Additional venues include the Center for the Visual Arts Gallery at Illinois State University; and the National Science Foundation. Via the Associated Press, his photos were published by the India Times, Press Enterprise, CBS News, Forbes, and the Wall Street Journal. In addition to writing and making art, Gregory Scheckler serves as Professor of Art at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.

But what’s he really like? What’s he stand for?

He’s tall. He’s dorky. He’s analytical. He’s pro-science, secular, progressive and silly. Indeed whenever you buy a book, you are supporting a series of worldviews and politics. So let’s just be clear and open about them. First, of course you’re going to get a good book or story. But when you help me, I help others too. Here’s a partial list of where donations are likely to go:

Center for Inquiry/Skeptical Inquirer; American Humanist Association; Milne Public Library; Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art; Clark Art Institute; Trustees of the Reservations; Food Bank of Western Massachusetts; Democratic National Committee; National Alliance on Mental Illness; American Civil Liberties Union; The Southern Poverty Law Center; The Science Society; and The Planetary Society.
