Manny Frishberg’s romance with the written word began in Mrs. Harrison’s 2nd grade and his love has not faded in the decades since. While he had an illustrious grammar school career as a storyteller and writer, he did not publish his first short story professionally until 2010.
In between, he did edit a dozen print and online publications, and publish thousands of news and feature magazine articles. Since his first short story appearance, “Frank and Jon,” a modern recasting of the Frankenstein legend in Darker Than Noir, he has published more than two dozen stories. Several have been coauthored by his longtime friend and sometimes collaborator, Edd Vick.
In 2010 he added book editing to his list of achievements with the release of “Soul Asylum” by CL Raven in the UK. He currently does developmental and line editing for small presses and independent authors in the US, Canada and the UK. He is the editor of two anthologies of science fiction and fantasy stories: “Horseshoes, Hand Grenades and Magic,” tales in which “almost” counts, and “After the Orange,” stories of possible post-Trump worlds.
Manny Frishberg and his partner live near Seattle, Washington. He has a novel (or two) in progress.
