Hi, I’m Rick. Welcome to my website.
I’m a full-time fiction writer who writes stories under several pen names in several genres. Richard Alan Dickson writes science fiction, young adult and a wide variety of humor. Tor Richardson is another pen name (and a different website). He writes mysteries and stories that carry a little more grit. Other pen names are… well… they’re still a bit quiet.
Occasionally, people feel tricked when they discover that writers use pen names. In fact, pen names are not for the benefit of the writer. They are tools to help readers find similar stories to the ones they like. A reader who enjoys a light-hearted science fiction tale, for example, might not appreciate a dark drama where everyone dies. If all stories fall under the same name, the reader might pick up one of each type and then be less than happy.
On this website, you’ll find a short bio, a cover gallery, and a few story teasers, among other things. Please stay as long as you like. You’re always welcome.
Thank you for visiting,
