Dale Stromberg is an author, editor, and translator living in Malaysia. He studied the art of fiction with the novelists Richard Bankowsky and Doug Rice in Sacramento, California, before spending about a decade in Tokyo, where he fronted a few bands.


Dale has published short fiction in New World WritingAfter Dinner Conversation, Rue Scribe, Sonder Midwest, and elsewhere. He independently released Getback, his first novel, in 2015. Now he is developing a contemplative fantasy novel and a collection of melancholic flash fiction.


As an editor, he has worked with novelists in the U.K. and the U.S. He handles both literary and genre work; all that matters is that the story matter.


His other job is as a translator/interpreter (English/Japanese) in the 3D animation field. In the end credits of a handful of TV shows and films, if you sit and wait long enough, you might see his name scroll past.


This profile of Dale was written by himself, in the third person, which he hopes has fooled you into thinking he merits the sort of critical attention that would normally lead someone to write a bio of someone else.
