James Frederick William Rowe is a Rhysling-nominated poet and author out of Brooklyn, New York. In the last few years, he has cut out a substantial niche in the speculative poetry front, having seen over thirty poems published internationally in such markets as "Big Pulp", "Songs of Eretz", "Tale of the Talisman", "Heroic Fantasy Quarterly", "Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine", and now "Bete Noire". "Antichrist" is his first foray into the comic/graphic novel world. When he is not writing verses, crafting yarns, and editing comic books, he is employed as an adjunct professor of philosophy in the City University of New York, is pursuing a Ph.D. in the same subject, and works a variety of freelance positions.
