Bill Ectric seeks the nexus between mysticism and science. His writing often blends the genres of mystery, science fiction, psychological drama, humor, and metafiction. Bill likes to take long walks, drink...read more coffee, sleep & dream, contemplate the nature of reality, read, and write. One of his favorite sayings is the Zen proverb, "Before I was enlightened, I chopped wood and carried water; after I was enlightened, I chopped wood and carried water." Bill's novel, Tamper, takes takes its name from a phrase used by 1940's by pulp science fiction writer Richard Sharpe Shaver, who believed that unseen fiends were tampering with his mind.
