My neighbor (who is too chicken to read Exoskeleton) took this photo while I was doing yard work. Funny she'd catch me carrying both a chainsaw and a machete. Have to keep reminding her that I don't write serial killer novels.
And yes, I know, I need a new pic ... nice swollen right eye. I took an elbow playing basketball. Not that a new pic is going to help anything ...

As an experimental physicist, Shane Stadler has worked at numerous government laboratories, including the Naval Research Lab in Washington, DC. He is currently a professor in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA, where he teaches undergraduate and graduate physics, and conducts research on novel materials including magnetocalorics (i.e., for magnetic cooling), spintronic materials, and superconductors. He has published over 120 papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals, and is a new coauthor of a classic undergraduate textbook that has been in print for thirty years.
Shane grew up in Wisconsin, where he did his undergrad work at a liberal arts college, and then got his Ph.D. in physics from Tulane University in New Orleans. His fiction debut, Exoskeleton, was published in 2012 by Dark Hall Press. Tympanum, the sequel to Exoskeleton, was released in October of 2015. The third in the series, with the running title, Omniscient, is slated for release in mid-2017.
