James L. Cambias

James Cambias was born and raised in New Orleans. He studied the History of Science at the University of Chicago. He worked briefly for two book publishers, but has been a full-time writer since 1991. His published work includes more than a dozen roleplaying supplements, and 16 short stories -- mostly in F&SF or anthologies. His first novel A Darkling Sea was published by Tor in 2014. His most recent novel is Arkad's World, from Baen Books, and his fantasy-noir novel The Intiate will appear in February 2020. He lives in western Massachusetts, where he writes, plays roleplaying games, and cooks. Since 2004 Mr. Cambias has been a partner in Zygote Games, a company specializing in science-based card and board games. As with most writers, the most interesting things in his life happen inside his head.
