Isaac Mayo is a writer and freelance editor living and working in Portland Or. He has spent the bulk of the last decade studying Philosophy, English, Cybertheory, and Book Publishing at Portland State University. He favors science fiction (particularly military and cyberpunk) but generally enjoys any story that is interesting and well told. Isaac also likes writing for screen.
He was first published in the 2009 Summer/Fall edition of the Oregon Literary Review—a screenplay short called If on a Winter’s Eve. In 2010 he won grand prize in the Imagining Indigenous Futurism Writing Contest (Judged by Stephen Graham Jones) with a selection from his in-progress cyberwestern, No Signal. And in 2011 he was first runner up for the graduate fiction category in the Kellogg Awards. His latest short story will be included in the Fall 2011 edition of The Portland Review.
