Bhaskar Dutt grew up in central India, where, as a child, he discovered a love for science fiction among the racks of well-thumbed Asimov paperbacks at a rundown community library. Later, he developed a similar fondness for fantasy while skipping class to hide out in the school library, where he found a cloth-bound copy of The Hobbit. He began to write, out of a desire to recreate the sense of wonder he found in the stories of Niven or Clarke. The fact that a few people actually wanted to read what he produced was a welcome bonus.
After finishing school, he came to the US to attend college. He spent six years in Georgia, after which he left to join a software company in the Pacific Northwest, armed with his shiny new Master's degree in Computer Science. Today, he lives in a house on a soggy hillside near Seattle with his wife, two young children, and an eternally hungry Labrador whose stomach is apparently equipped with Tardis-like technology.
Bhaskar’s work has been published in the first Warrior Wisewoman anthology, Neo-Opsis, and Scifantastic. He has also had two stories translated into Hindi and published in the Indian literary magazine Akshar Parv.
