Born and raised in Chicago, James Kahn attended the University of Chicago for both undergraduate and medical studies. During this time, he was encouraged to begin writing fantasy by the Byronic scholar, Jerome McGann. Shortly afterward, Kahn began publishing short stories in Playboy, Gallery, and elsewhere. Since then, he's done postgraduate training at USC-LA County Hospital and UCLA, specializing in Emergency Medicine. Dr. Kahn is the author of another novel, Diagnosis: Murder, and coauthor of the poetry collection Nerves in Patterns. In addition to writing and practicing medicine, Dr. Kahn is a singer-songwriter with a local folk-rock group, Silver City; he is an unclassified foil fencer and a great lover of cats.
