Jonathan Crowe blogs about maps at The Map Room and reviews books for AE: The Canadian Science Fiction Review. His essays have appeared in The New York Review of Science Fiction and the Ottawa Citizen. His fanzine, Ecdysis, was a two-time finalist for the Aurora Award.

His other web projects include DFL, a blog about last-place finishes at the Olympics that made him world famous for 15 minutes in 2004; and Gartersnake.info, a website for garter snake keepers.

Jonathan has been interviewed or profiled by Agence France-Presse, the BBC World Service, the Boston Globe, CBC Newsworld, CTV Newsnet, Folha de São Paolo, the Hamilton Spectator, the National Post, the Ottawa Sun, Reuters, RTÉ, Sports Illustrated, the Toronto Star and the West Quebec Post, among others. He has also appeared as a panelist and presenter at science fiction conventions like Can-Con, Readercon and SFContario.

A former political operative, history graduate student, civil servant, small-town newspaper reporter and snake breeder, Jonathan lives in Shawville, Quebec, with his wife, Jennifer Seely, their three cats, and an uncomfortable number of snakes, on a property a friend once compared to “living in an Enid Blyton novel.”
