Biography

Victor was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1945. He received a B.A. with a major in creative writing from Queens College, City University of New York. He was accepted into the MFA program at the University of California, Irvine but could not attend due to his application for conscientious objector status, during the Vietnam War, being refused. When faced with the choice of being part of the war effort or leave the country, he left.


He was married around 1975 and has two children. Victor was a human rights officer in Manitoba for 21 years. He is now retired and living in Vancouver, Canada. He does a lot of volunteer work, ranging from hosting a writers’ circle (soon for a Vancouver organization providing services to clients with disabilities) to running the movie room at the Winnipeg science fiction convention for 15 years.
