E(ugene).C. Myers is the author of four young adult novels: Fair Coin, Quantum Coin, The Silence of Six, and Against All Silence.

He was assembled in the U.S. from Korean and German parts and raised by a single mother and a public library in Yonkers, New York, where he survived an improbable number of life-threatening experiences—most miraculously, high school—with ample scars as proof.

He graduated from Columbia University with a bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts, which has been of little use in his professional career but looks pretty nice on the wall. He is currently a full-time writer and editor for a Philadelphia university and hospital.

His science fiction and fantasy short stories have been published in a number of magazines and anthologies such as Kaleidoscope: Diverse YA Science Fiction and Fantasy StoriesAndromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine, and Space and Time magazine.

He attended the Clarion West Writers Workshop in 2005 and is a member of the professional writing group Altered Fluid. He currently lives with his wife, son, two doofy cats, and a deaf Australian Shepherd in Pennsylvania. In his increasingly scarce free time, he blogs Star Trek Re-watch reviews with Torie Atkinson at, and live streams retro video games on YouTube.
