David Clink was born in Medicine Hat, Alberta, though his
family, eventually settled in Willowdale, Ontario. David ran
his high school Science Fiction Club and co-chaired NASFAcon
III, a one-day SF convention in 1982. After high school, David
attended many institutions, eventually earning a bachelor's
degree in English.
Since graduation, David's kept busy by: attending three
Worldcons, wrestling an octopus, playing softball, building
cheeze-doodle sculptures, playing street hockey, taking a
bartending course, starting his own press (believe your own
press), and writing a heck of a lot of great poems.
His first chapbook, His name was Gord, and he used to
run with the bulls, was published by Junction Books in May,
2001. The follow up is The Surley Blondes of Earth,
which was just released in March, 2002. In the fall, a
collection of nature poems, Come on from the Horse on
Seventh Avenue, will be published.
