Author's Bio

Jim Eigo has written on theater, dance, art, literature, sex and the design of clinical trials. He helped design two reforms of AIDS drug regulation, accelerated approval and expanded access, reforms that facilitated the delivery of many treatments to people across the world. This work is profiled in the documentaries How to Survive a Plague and United in Anger. For the better part of a decade he edited two gay magazines, Playguy and Inches. His first published art work appears in The Poetics of Space from Intima Press. You’ll find his short fiction in the journals listed elsewhere on this page, and in many others that P&W doesn’t (yet?) recognize: Split, Bop Dead City, Vagabonds: Anthology of the Mad Ones, Word Gumbo, Volition, Zest Literary Journal, NY____ and Sink. You can read the first chapter of his novel-in-progress in the inaugural issue of ink&coda.
