My short fiction has appeared in journals like Mudrock, The Owl, The Kenyon Review, and The Kenyon Review Online. My ribald limericks and haikus have appeared in Brocabulary (HarperCollins) and the Chicago Sun-Times.com. My essays have appeared in Slate, Paranormal Pop Culture, the New York Times Local East Village, PopMatters, and Rawk! Magazine.
My books have been translated into Chinese and Spanish.
I started this blog because I am so frequently prompted to talk about zombies, and so frequently asked to give my opinion of new zombie-stuff in the media.
I have discussed zombies on the Fox News Channel, National Public Radio, Martha Stewart Living Radio, The Alan Colmes Show and other esteemed news outlets. I have been written about in the Chicago Tribune, Huffington Post, Hartford Courant, Sacramento Bee, Indianapolis Star, Cleveland Plain Dealer, USA TODAY, Rue Morgue Magazine, Fangoria, Gawker.com, MTV.com, BoingBoing.net, AOL News, and the New York Times “City Room” blog.
I am regularly invited to speak about zombies and horror writing at colleges and universities.
I play drums in the musical band The Blissters. I live in Chicago. I am a graduate of Kenyon College and Columbia University.
