Keith Hartman (born 1966) is an American writer of speculative fiction and a self-described "struggling film-maker".[1] He has also written non-fiction books on gay and lesbian issues. He has been nominated a number of times for the Gaylactic Spectrum Awards and Lambda Literary Award for LGBT literature.
