About the author:
Out of high school, I joined the US Marines and served just post Viet Nam as a Military Policeman. Nothing in my life has touched me or changed me as much as those four years learning about honor and discipline.
After my service, Uncle Sugar was nice enough to subsidize four years of university and a BFA. Even while still in college I began my career as an illustrator working primarily in the role-playing game field. My early work included the Star Trek and Dr. Who role playing games for FASA, and lead to a long run on titles like Battle-Tech, the DC Universe Role Playing Game, Chill, Traveller and much more.
Later I founded Starchilde Studios where I created, wrote and published the game Justifiers RPG. Moving to New York to pursue work in comics, I wrote and drew for Valiant Comics at the height of their popularity. Additional work came my way from Marvel, Milestone/DC Comics, and Image. After leaving Valiant, I started Comicolor, one of the first digital coloring and lettering companies for comic books in North America.
I currently live and work in Kalamazoo, Michigan with my wife Betsy and daughter Caitlin who are also my editors and collaborators. I have three other grown children; Donald, Erin and Rose.
Vengeance is a Wheel
Orion the Hunter Book 1
Clifford E VanMeter
A marshal of the newly minted Federation of Worlds, he is a man-hunter and sworn to serve the law. Now he has returned to the world of his birth to fulfill a different oath. One made as he grew to manhood in the internment camps during the war. An oath sworn on the blood of a dead family. An oath that may leave his home world a dead husk by the time he is done.
My stories, beginning with Vengeance is a Wheel: Orion the Hunter Book 1, are set in the Orion Arm roughly 280 years in the future. It is a period of reconstruction following a Great War between humanity and the tir'a, another FTL capable race. I call the entire interconnected series of planned titles, The Spiral Arm.
