(1960-    ) US author who began publishing work of genre interest with "Clearance to Land" for Pulphouse: The Hardback Magazine #5, Fall 1989, and much of whose subsequent work for some years was Horror, though he has published Print On Demand collections which include sf, and Tangled Strings (coll 2004), which incorporates two tales from his AIsource Infection Future History sequence. Vossoff and Nummitz: Just a Couple of Idiots Reupholstering Space and Time (coll 2002) knowledgeably presents a series of tales in the Dumb-and-Dumber tradition made explicit in its subtitle. Castro also had some impact for his Spider-Man Ties, beginning with Spider-Man: The Gathering of the Sinister Six (1999). Of greater interest, however, is the Andrea Cort sequence whose first volume, Emissaries from the Dead (2008), won the Philip K Dick Award in 2008; it is set in Zoo-like Keeps in a manufactured ecosystem ruled by Aliens with life-and-death control over the various Genetically Engineered races under observation.
