Haan Lee
Haan likes stories about the barely surreal, the vaguely weird, and the quietly absurd. He likes stories where small picture people wander big picture worlds. He likes stories that have roots in science, science fiction, and speculation.
Haan strives to create what he likes.
Haan lives in Brooklyn with his superior half and their vastly inferior cat.
