After the unfortunate error of having been born in Chicago, Bill Carlson quickly moved to a farm in Nebraska where he had his own horse, various dogs and cats, and fished in the Middle Loup River. The change apparently took, because he had vowed that he would never live in a city. He did condescend to take his Bachelor of Arts at the University of Nebraska and braved the teeming East to get his master's at Cornell on a Woodrow Wilson fellowship. After that he bounced around Europe for a while, returning to the United States in time to get into the Navy, where a trusting goverment made him a destroyer officer. Carlson has been a free-lance writer since 1966, operating from the metropolis of Arcadia, Nebraska, population 482. between fishing and hunting and living a Huckleberry Finn life that takes him on long swings throught the West, he has become a polished writer.
