Min­is­ter Faust is a nov­el­ist, print/radio/television jour­nal­ist, blog­ger, sketch com­e­dy writer, video game writer, play­wright, and poet. Faust’s nov­els include the recent­ly rere­leased The Alchemists of Kushthe Kin­dred Award-win­ning and Philip K. Dick run­ner-up Shrink­ing the Heroes (a.k.a. From the Note­books of Doc­tor Brain), and The Coy­ote Kings of the Space-Age Bach­e­lor Pad, which was short­list­ed for the Locus Best First Nov­el, Philip K. Dick, and Comp­ton-Crook awards. Faust con­tributed to BioWare’s Mass Effect 2, co-wrote the Kasu­mi DLC for Mass Effect 2, and wrote BioWare’s Gift of the Yeti and Maxis’s Dark­spore. His pod­cast MF Galaxy—“Writ­ers on Writ­ing, Pop Cul­ture, Pol­i­tics, and Africentricity”—is an amaz­ing piece of work.
