Scott Pearson is a freelance writer and editor who was first published in 1987 with “The Mailbox,” a Minnesota Monthly Tamarack Award winner about an elderly farming couple. That was back when stories were done on typewriters.
In the decades since, he has published humor, mystery, urban fantasy, science fiction, horror, poetry, and nonfiction. That eclectic output includes a Led Zeppelin discography, a series of books on invasive species for young readers, and a couple of screenplays for the IMAX space documentaries Space Next and Touch the Stars.
A Star Trek fan since the early seventies, Scott has had three Trek short stories and two Trek novellas published by Simon & Schuster. He has written articles about Trek for the official Star Trek magazine and has copyedited dozens of Trek novels since 2014. He’s the canon editor of the Star Trek Adventures role-playing game.
Scott has edited nonfiction books on a wide variety of topics, from the memoirs of World War II veterans to true crime to the space shuttle. He lives in personable St. Paul, Minnesota, with his wife, Sandra, and their cat, Ripley. He and his daughter, Ella, cohost the podcast Generations Geek.

Strange as it may seem, all this random writing and editing is his only job, so if you’ve enjoyed any of his work or perhaps you’ve seen him on a panel at a con, please consider visiting his Ko-fi page, where you can read free book reviews from his archives and maybe drop something in the tip jar!
