"With knowledge possibility increases, fluidly, rapidly, FOREVER."
Skirting the edge between literary and science fiction, the poems and stories of Steve Mitchell represent the best of both genres. He uses symbols from science fiction and religion to explore the nature of humanity, analyzing concepts like God, truth, death, and recreational drug use with a steady background of beautifully-worked prose.
Steven K. Mitchell has been a bouncer, a disc-jockey, a fleece salesman, a laborer, a leasing rep, a baker, worked at a video store and more. But in his own words he has really been one thing the whole time, "A poet". His favorite authors are Robert E. Howard, Edgar Allen Poe and A. E. Van Vogt. He also cites the eclectic mix of Michael Moorcock, Hunter S. Thompson, Sylvia Plath, James Agee and Franz Kafka as influences.
