Biography:

June 28, 1946 – May 22, 2008

Born in 1946, Robert Lynn Asprin is a first generation American of Philippine-Irish descent. Raised in the university town of Ann Arbor, Michigan, he was exposed to a wide range of bookstores, museums, and cultures from an early age. Attending the University of Michigan and enlisting in the Army during the stormy and controversial Vietnam era of the sixties only served to enhance his awareness and appreciation of diversity, and working his way through the accounting department of a small subsidiary of the Xerox corporation for twelve years prior to becoming a full-time writer provided the finishing touches to his unique view of the people around him. Robert has two children, Annette and Daniel. His interests are many and varied, ranging from fencing and music to tropical fish and needlework. He claims to have been at one time or another a fencing coach, a Mongol warlord, a Klingon, a cost accountant and a deep space mercenary. Scholars of the genre consider this biography to be highly fictional, due to the fact that the fourth named would be grounds for arrest anywhere in the civilized universe. He is also the editor, with his wife, Lynn Abbey, of the best selling "Thieves' World" anthology series.
