My name is Adam Spielman and I was born in the year of the rat, 1984, in the mile high city. I grew up in Minnesota where I developed a taste for hockey, dark beer, and good long books to get through the winter. After a three year stint of teaching in Korea, I came back home for one more shot at publishing my fiction.
And this blog is ground zero. Short stories, novels, web series, I’ll be posting everything here. You can navigate me through the above menu and there’s a portal around here somewhere. If you see something you like, please feel free to follow, comment, and share.

The original story, 1 Truth Road, also inspired a short film called LIMBO. Jon Benjamin (voice of Archer) stars as Jim. When the film is released it will be posted all over this blog. Here’s the promo video that went with the kickstarter that made the film possible.
