Barry Basden edits Camroc Press Review and is coauthor of CRACK! AND THUMP: WITH A COMBAT INFANTRY OFFICER IN WORLD WAR II. His shorter work has been published widely, both online and in print. Back in the day, he picked cotton, sold greeting cards out of a pickup, and worked in a pawn shop, where he played with the musical instruments, never very well. He now lives in the Texas hill country with his wife and two yellow Labs.
