SoonerCon 30 Literary Guest of Honor, A Lee Martinez

A. Lee Martinez is a writer, which is probably obvious. His novels are known for combining pulp and comic-book influences with philosophy, metaphysics, and humor. He describes his style as Saturday Morning Humanism. His novel Monster was adapted into the 2020 Chinese-language film Monster Run. He isn’t a very interesting person, but he likes writing and getting paid for it—so he’s got that going for him. He lives outside of Dallas, Texas with his wife and the minimum number of pets required as a writer.
