Goblin King torchlight

In honor of this year’s theme “All Hail the Goblin King”, Spocon would like to shine a little light upon local artists and writers who inspire and fascinate. New people will be highlighted regularly, so please return and don’t forget to pre-register for 2019.

Richard Flores IV

is the Editor-in-Chief for Factor Four Magazine, a quarterly publication of speculative flash fiction. Originally from Northern California, he now lives just south of Seattle with his wife and three boys. He has been known to write from time to time. He is the author of The Serenity Saga, Broken Trust, and Volition Agent. Richard also has several short stories in various publications. When asked which he enjoys more, writing or publishing, he skillfully dodges the question.

Richard is a huge (maybe obsessive) Tomb Raider fan. His office walls are covered in science Fiction and fantasy artwork that he always seems to acquire at conventions.
