Keith Sloan is a naval officer who has somehow managed to beach himself in Omaha, Nebraska. His fascination with Hodgson stems from a combination of a love for weird fiction, especially Lovecraft, and from Hodgson's own obsession with the sea. Though originally coming to Hodgson through his Sargasso Sea stories, he is still most haunted by the vision of the Night Land.
Keith writes when his duties allow, which means he never has enough time to do the writing he'd like. He has had a few other short stories published in a variety of fantasy magazines and even an anthology. His short historical fiction has appeared in Tarpeian Rock.
