Laird Barron

I spent my youth in Alaska where I worked in the fishing and construction industries and raced sled dogs. I retired from racing around 1995, moved to Washington State, and dedicated myself to writing.Gordon Van Gelder gave me my professional fiction debut when he published "Shiva, Open Your Eye" in the September issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. My debut collection, The Imago Sequence & Other Stories, was published in 2007 by Night Shade Books. My first novel, The Light Is the Darkness, was published in 2011 by Infernal House, followed by The Croning in 2012 from Night Shade Books.I write stories with elements of crime and horror. I'm fond of pulp, historicals, science fiction, and noir. Typically, my work combines one or more of these elements with a horrific or weird supernatural intrusion. Cormac McCarthy, Roger Zelazny, Michael Shea, Anne Sexton, Martin Cruz Smith, Angela Carter, T.E.D Klein, Peter Straub--these are a few of my favorite authors and my light in the distance when it gets dark.Scotch is my favorite drink. Roger Miller and Marty Robbins are my favorite singers. Blood Meridian is the best novel I've ever read. I consider earning the loyalty of my old dog my greatest accomplishment. Currently I live in the Hudson Valley and am at work on stories about the evil that men do.Photo credit belongs to Ardi AlspachAgent: Janet Reid of FinePrint Literary Management
