About meHorror author, college professor, oddball.

Books I've written (or in which I appear) are tagged "Arnzen" in my library -- please feel free to openly comment or review. Visit my website at for more and more weirdness! Subscribe to my newsletter when you're there.

I teach writing in Seton Hill University's MFA in Writing Popular Fiction Program. Visit for details.

About my libraryLike all libraries, mine is a work-in-progress. My listings now include ebooks as well as my wife's books (some German) and those we "saved" from the previous owner of my house (they were throwing them in a dumpster when we moved in!)... so this 'library' is very eclectic and loosely curated.

But if you browse around, you'll quickly discover the major thrust of my interests are in HORROR FICTION (especially short story collections/anthologies), WRITING INSTRUCTION BOOKS (including several books on teaching and pedagogy), and LITERARY THEORY. Oh, and among all the witchcraft research and serial killer biographies, you'll find a few books about kitty cats, too. :-)
