Gray Rinehart

Gray Rinehart

     Author / Performer

LibertyCon 29 Master of Ceremonies (2016)

Gray Rinehart is the only person to have commanded an Air Force tracking station, written speeches for Presidential appointees, had music on "The Dr. Demento Show," and been nominated for a literary award. Gray's fiction has appeared in Analog Science Fiction & Fact, Asimov's Science Fiction, Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show, and elsewhere. His story, "Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust, Earth to Alluvium," was a finalist for the 2015 Hugo Award for Best Novelette. He is also a singer/songwriter with two albums of mostly science-fiction-and-fantasy-inspired songs, and the author of a number of nonfiction articles, essays, and one book on improving education. Before becoming a Contributing Editor ( the "Slushmaster General" ) for Baen Books, Gray fought rocket propellant fires, refurbished space launch facilities, commanded the AF Satellite Control Network's largest and northernmost satellite tracking station, and did other interesting things during his rather odd career. Gray's alter ego is the Gray Man, one of several famed ghosts of South Carolina's Grand Strand, and his web site is www.graymanwrites.com.
