Short biography
Information about Stevens is patchy and contradictory: He may have been born in 1937 or 1941, he might or might not be dead, his father is in one place listed as Caryl Chessman (!), and it's been suggested that 'Shane Stevens' is only a pseudonym. A fellowship at the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference is named after him.
