Short biography
ERIC J. GUIGNARD is a writer and editor of dark and speculative fiction, operating from the shadowy outskirts of Los Angeles, where he also runs the small press, Dark Moon Books. He’s won the Bram Stoker Award, been a finalist for the International Thriller Writers Award, and a multi-nominee of the Pushcart Prize.

He has over 100 stories and non-fiction works appearing in publications such as NIGHTMARE MAGAZINE, GAMUT, BLACK STATIC, SHOCK TOTEM, and DARK DISCOVERIES MAGAZINE. As editor, Eric’s published six anthologies, such as Dark Tales of Lost Civilizations, After Death..., The Five Senses of Horror, +Horror Library+ Volume 6, and A World of Horror, a showcase of international horror short fiction.

Additionally, he’s created an ongoing series of primers exploring modern masters of literary dark short fiction, titled: Exploring Dark Short Fiction (Vol. I: Steve Rasnic Tem; Vol. II: Kaaron Warren ; Vol. III: Nisi Shawl; Vol. IV: Jeffrey Ford; Vol. V: Han Song; Vol. VI: Ramsey Campbell).

Read his short story collection That Which Grows Wild: 16 Tales of Dark Fiction (Cemetery Dance), standalone novella Baggage of Eternal Night (JournalStone), and watch for forthcoming books, including the novel Crossbuck ’Bo.

Outside the glamorous and jet-setting world of indie fiction, Eric’s a technical writer and college professor, and he stumbles home each day to a wife, children, cats, and a terrarium filled with mischievous beetles.
