Michael Pederson

Michael D. Pederson is the publisher/editor/graphic designer responsible for Nth Degree. Mike began his career as a writer/publisher in 1988 when his SF short story, “Dust Storm,” won first place in a local writing contest. In the 1990s, he wrote and published the Raven comic book series and edited and published Scene, a local entertainment magazine.

In 2001, Mike was part of the “Best in Class – Master Division” winning presentation at the Worldcon Masquerade. In 2007, he wrote a chapter on “Writing for Magazines” for Dragon Moon Press’ Writing Fantasy: The Author’s Grimoire.

In 2006, Mike founded RavenCon in Richmond, Virginia. In 2015, RavenCon moved to Williamsburg and Mike is still the con chair. Mike has also run programming for Trinoc*coN, been Fan GoH for ConCarolinas and Mysticon, co-chaired a successful NASFiC bid, and served as Master of Ceremonies for MarsCon. Between Nth Degree and his many convention appearances, Mike has become the East Coast’s go-to guy for interviews. He’s interviewed guests for Balticon, ConGregate, MarsCon, Mysticon, RavenCon, and StellarCon. Since 2002, he has interviewed a wide range of writers, gamers, artists, fans, and actors.

When not engaged in geekish pursuits, Mike is an under-employed graphic designer and lives in Richmond, Virginia.
