Waylon Prince

Waylon wanted to be an astronaut when he grew up, but ended up a writer instead. Given the state of NASA these days, that might not be a bad thing. A steady diet of comic books, sci-fi movies, computer games, and Twilight Zone reruns fueled his youthful imagination and made him quite the unique individual among his small-town Southern classmates. He lived through the great D&D scare of the ‘80s without so much as casting a real-world magic missile, went unfazed by the backmasking audio messages hidden on all his LPs, and remained uncorrupted from wanting his MTV. Today, Waylon can be found at nearly any Cineplex or concert venue, watching all kinds of movies and listening to all kinds of bands. Except country. A man has to have standards.
