Anton Stark is the pseudonym of a Portuguese professional editor and translator, amateur historian and hoplologist, and neophyte historical reenactor. He was born in 1991, a few short months before the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Coincidence? Almost certainly. Or was it? His recent works include the first Portuguese cyberpunk anthology, Proxy (as editor), and the short story “Videri Quam Esse” in the Steampunk International Anthology (published by New Con Press in the UK, Editorial Divergência in Portugal, and Osuuskumma in Finland).
