Biography

Schoen was born in Chicago, Illinois, but his family moved to Southern California when he was 18 months old, and he grew up in Culver City.[3]

In 1983, he graduated with B.S. in Psycholinguistics from California State University, Northridge, having designed his own major, and then moved on to Kansas City University where he earned his M.S. and Ph.D. in Psychology. In graduate school, Schoen's research focused on cognitive psychology and psycholinguistics.[4]

Doctorate in hand, he spent the next ten years in academia as an assistant professor at New College of Florida, Lake Forest College in Illinois, and Chestnut Hill College in Pennsylvania. He then moved to the private sector and currently serves as the director of research and analytics for a medical center which provides mental health and addiction treatment service works throughout Philadelphia.[5]

Schoen lives in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania.[6]

Author

Schoen attended the 1998 session of James Gunn's two-week Writers' Workshop in Science Fiction on the campus of the University of Kansas.[7] In 2010, he participated in Walter Jon Williams' two-week master class, the Taos Toolbox.

He has been nominated for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, the Hugo Award for Best Short Story, the Nebula Award for Best Novella three times,[8][9][10] as well as receiving nominations for both the Nebula Award for Best Novel[11] and the Cóyotl Award for Best Novel.[12]

Some of his more notable works as an author include the Amazing Conroy series of science fiction stories and novels, the first of which appeared in 2001,[13] about a space-traveling stage hypnotist and his alien companion animal (a "buffalito") that can consume anything and farts oxygen. Among these, the short story "Yesterday's Taste"[14] and the novellas Barry's Tale (2012),[15] Trial of the Century (2013),[16] and Calendrical Regression (2015)[17] have received award nominations.

Schoen appeared at Book Expo America in May 2015, where he was presented as one of four authors described by Tor Books as the next generation of science fiction and fantasy, based on his novel Barsk: The Elephants' Graveyard, anthropomorphic SF that explores prophecy, intolerance, political betrayal, and a drug that lets one talk to the dead.

In the Summer of 2015, he joined the staff at Orson Scott Card's InterGalactic Medicine Show as Reprint Editor, replacing Darrell Schweitzer as the magazine's interviewer.

Klingonist

Schoen founded the Klingon Language Institute[18] and has published Klingon translations of William Shakespeare's plays Hamlet (The Klingon Hamlet, ISBN 978-0671035785) and Much Ado About Nothing (ISBN 978-1587155017), as well as the Epic of Gilgamesh (ISBN 978-1587153389) and the Tao Te Ching (ISBN 978-0964434523). In the realm of Klingon nonfiction, Schoen edited and published The Grammarian's Desk (978-0964434530), a collection of essays written by Captain Krankor (Rich Yampell). He also served as the editor of HolQeD (ISSN 1061-2327), the quarterly journal of the KLI, for the entirety of its 13-year run. He was featured in Director Alexandre O. Philippe's documentary about the Klingon Language Institute, Earthlings: Ugly Bags of Mostly Water (2004).[19] In 2011, he produced a daily Klingon language podcast called DaHjaj Hol.[20] (See Klingon Language Institute#Publications.)

Small press publisher

Schoen is the publisher and chief editor for Paper Golem, a speculative fiction small press started in November, 2006. The first book it published was Prime Codex, an anthology of previously published stories by members of the Codex Writers Group, of which Schoen is a founding member.[21] Paper Golem is Schoen's vehicle for "paying it forward," and focuses on two mains tracks: publishing single author collections by relatively new authors (e.g., Cat Rambo in 2009, Eric James Stone in 2011), and the Alembical series, which produces anthologies of original novellas (J. Kathleen Cheney's novella "Iron Shoes", from Alembical 2, received a nomination for the Nebula Award).[22]

Hypnotist

In 2013, Schoen took a page from one of his fictional creations and became certified as a hypnotherapist by the International Association of Professional Conversational Hypnotists (IAPCH), with the intention of developing materials to aid other writers grappling with problems common to their field (e.g., writer's block).[23]

Nebula Award for Best Novella

The Nebula Award for Best Novella is given each year by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) for science fiction or fantasy novellas. A work of fiction is defined by the organization as a novella if it is between 17,500 and 40,000 words; awards are also given out for pieces of longer lengths in the novel category, and for shorter lengths in the short story and novelette categories. To be eligible for Nebula Award consideration a novella must be published in English in the United States. Works published in English elsewhere in the world are also eligible provided they are released on either a website or in an electronic edition. The Nebula Award for Best Novella has been awarded annually since 1966. Novellas published by themselves are eligible for the novel award instead if the author requests them to be considered as such. The award has been described as one of "the most important of the American science fiction awards" and "the science-fiction and fantasy equivalent" of the Emmy Awards.Nebula Award nominees and winners are chosen by members of the SFWA, though the authors of the nominees do not need to be members. Works are nominated each year between November 15 and February 15 by published authors who are members of the organization, and the six works that receive the most nominations then form the final ballot, with additional nominees possible in the case of ties. Members may then vote on the ballot throughout March, and the final results are presented at the Nebula Awards ceremony in May. Authors are not permitted to nominate their own works, and ties in the final vote are broken, if possible, by the number of nominations the works received. The rules were changed to their current format in 2009. Previously, the eligibility period for nominations was defined as one year after the publication date of the work, which allowed the possibility for works to be nominated in the calendar year after their publication and then be awarded in the calendar year after that. Works were added to a preliminary list for the year if they had ten or more nominations, which were then voted on to create a final ballot, to which the SFWA organizing panel was also allowed to add an additional work.During the 53 nomination years, 171 authors have had works nominated; 49 of these have won, including co-authors and ties. Nancy Kress has won the most awards: four out of eight nominations. Robert Silverberg, John Varley, and Roger Zelazny have each won twice out of eight, two, and three nominations, respectively. Silverberg's and Kress's eight nominations are the most of any authors, followed by Lucius Shepard and Michael Bishop at seven, and Kate Wilhelm and Avram Davidson with six. Bishop has the most nominations without receiving an award for novellas, though Wilhelm and Davidson have also not won an award.

The Klingon Way

The Klingon Way: A Warrior's Guide (Klingon: tlhIngan tIgh: SuvwI' DevmeH paq) is a 1996 book by the linguist Marc Okrand that was published by Pocket Books. The Klingon Way is a collection of proverbs and sayings in the constructed language of Klingon, ascribed to the Klingon race and Klingon culture in the fictional Star Trek universe. Okrand first began constructing the Klingon language in the 1980s when he was hired to produce Klingon dialogue for Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, going on to publish The Klingon Dictionary. The Klingon Way expanded the Klingon lexicon, and was followed by Klingon for the Galactic Traveler.

An audiobook version of The Klingon Way, featuring the voices of Michael Dorn and Roxann Dawson, was produced by Simon & Schuster Audio. The Klingon Language Institute considers The Klingon Way to be a canonical source of the Klingon language, and the book, along with Okrand's other work on the subject, has become highly important for a section of the Star Trek fandom.

Uplift (science fiction)

In science fiction, uplift is a developmental process to transform a certain species of animals into more intelligent beings by other, already-intelligent beings. This is usually accomplished by cultural, technological, or evolutional interventions like genetic engineering but any fictional or real process can be used. The earliest appearance of the concept is in H. G. Wells' 1896 novel The Island of Doctor Moreau, and more recently appears in David Brin's Uplift series and other science fiction works.
