The Champion is Travis Burnham. Heard of him? We have.
That’s right, all, the 2016 Gauntlet has concluded, and we’ve just crowned a new champion! Along with stellar, ironman performances from Alexis A. Hunter and Michael Anthony Ashley, the Final Round saw Travis Burnham walk away with the title. Travis becomes the 10th champion in WYRM’s Gauntlet history, and just the fourth of the new age. Let me introduce you to Travis. In fact, let Travis do that in his own words, then be sure to check him out elsewhere on social media and around the web.
Travis Burnham is an SF/F writer and science teacher. His work has previously appeared in Far Fetched Fables, Bad Dreams Entertainment, South85 Journal, and SQ Quarterly.
