Zephram Farrington hails from Taiwan, and currently lives in Baltimore, Maryland. His English first name refers to an obscure piece of Star Trek history, but you can call him Zeph.

He wrote his first science fiction story at age ten and his first fantasy novel at 18. Important stylistic influences on his work range from Herman Melville to William Gibson. As a general rule, he does not write anything non-speculative.

In his spare time, he plays more tabletop roleplaying games than he probably should.
