About Matthew Wayne Selznick

About Matthew Wayne Selznick Portrait Picture Thanks for wanting to know a little bit about Matthew Wayne Selznick! That sentence you just read was for the benefit of search engines and represents one of the few times I’ll talk about myself in the third person.

I’m an author, creator, and creative services provider living in Long Beach, California with the best girl in the world and too many pets. I write novels, short stories, and serials in four different storyworlds:

  • The Shaper’s World: a fantasy setting featuring three different interacting hominid species, the Magn, the Faien, and the Gundynal. Can they share the Shaper’s World and also protect it from incursions from Outside?
  • The Sovereign Era: an alternate history primarily set in the last decades of the twentieth century, when the sudden appearance of people with remarkable powers and abilities upsets the delicate, dangerous Cold War balance of power and forever alters the course of human destiny.
  • Daikaiju Universe: an alternate history wherein humankind is challenged by periodic manifestations of improbable, often ridiculously enormous beasts of unknown origin and purpose.
  • Protector: a world much like our own, save for the fact that generations of reluctant men and women sacrifice themselves to protect humanity from the shadows behind the shadows and other alien, occult threats.

I also write literary fiction that doesn’t belong to any particular storyworld, non-fiction, I’m a musician and songwriter, and I very occasionally write poetry.
