About Glenn Parris

Glenn Parris writes in the genres of sci-fi, fantasy, and medical mystery.  Considered by some an expert in Afrofuturism, he is a self-described lifelong sci-fi nerd. His interest in the topic began as a tween before the term Afrofuturism was even coined. As a graduate of The Bronx High School of Science, as were Samuel R. Delany, and Neil de Grasse Tyson, he was in good company to have his interests cultivated.

Parris encompasses his own dichotomy: physician by day, his scientific outlook informs his creative work.  As one of the too few African-American men practicing medicine, his unique perspective makes his writing compelling and makes him an engaging speaker.
