Brian Biswas has published nearly sixty short stories in the United States as well as internationally. His short story "A Betrayal" was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Novel excerpt "The Last Photon" was selected "Web Short of the Day" by fictiondaily.org. He is listed in the International Writers and Authors Who's Who, Marquis Who's Who, and the Internet Speculative Fiction Database.

He writes in a literary style reminiscent of magical realism, irrealism, or fabulism, which attempts to convey a slightly exaggerated but internally consistent sense of reality. He also writes straightforward science fiction, fantasy, and horror (often tinged with fantastic elements).

Brian was born in Columbus, Ohio. He received a B.A. in Philosophy from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio and an M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

In 1989, he moved to Chapel Hill, North Carolina with his wife, Elizabeth, and their son, Mark. Their daughter, Eliza, was born several years later. Mark is pursuing a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature at the University of California-Riverside. Eliza is a J.D. candidate at the University of Virginia School of Law. Brian lives in an old neighborhood in Chapel Hill with his wife and an ever changing assortment of animals.
