Teel James Glenn: Stuntman, Actor and Fight Choreographer and Novelist

Coming May 28th 8pm eastern


I was born in Brooklyn and have killed hundreds of people—and been killed hundreds of times—on screen. I’ve traveled the world for over forty years as a stuntman, fight choreographer, swordmaster, jouster, book illustrator, storyteller, bodyguard, and actor. One of the things I’m proudest of is having studied under Errol Flynn’s last stunt doubles and continue to teach swordwork in New York.

I worked regularly as an actor on Guiding Light and New York soaps alternately doing stunts or acting in over 300 episodes. I’ve worked as an actor and stuntman (in a fight scene with Hawk) on the “Spenser for Hire TV. Series and in episodes of the Equalizer.

My most famous ‘small screen’ appearance was as Vega (and fight choreographer) in the worldwide web series “Street Fighter: The Later Years.”

I went on to serve as a principal performer in front of the camera in over 70 low budget fantasy/horror genre films, often serving in a stunt capacity as well

I have had short stories published in Weird Tales, Mystery Weekly, Mad, Black Belt, Fantasy Tales, Pulp Adventures, Sherlock Holmes Mystery Magazine, Pulp Empire, Sixgun Western, Fantasy World Geographic, Silver Blade Quarterly, Cirsova, Another Realm, AfterburnSF, Cirsova, Blazing Adventures and over a hundred other publications.

I have over two score books currently on the market including my short story “The Clockwork Nutcracker” won best steampunk story for 2013 and has been expanded into a novel.

My latest novels are A Cowboy in Carpathia: A Bob Howard Adventure (winner of the best novel in the Pulp Factory Awards), The Skullmask Chronicles and Killing Shadows.

I was the Winner of the 2012 Pulp Ark ‘Best Author of the Year.’ Epic ebook award finalist. P&E winner “Best Steampunk Short”, a P & E finalist for “Best Fantasy short, Collection” 

On stage I’ve played Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster, Macbeth and had fun as the wrestler in As You Like it.

And performed at 60 Renaissance Faires and on screen I have been in several dozen genre films and TV series, appeared on all the New York Soap operas, Spenser for Hire and in more movies that show up on Showtime and Cinemax then he wants to admit including Citizen Toxie (as fight choreographer and Toxie’s double), Lord of the Strings, Spiderbabe, but am known most widely as Vega in the world wide web series “Street Fighter: the later years.” Needless to say all my sword swinging at on stage and screen go into my written work.
