Writer Wednesday: Richard Gavin

Anyone reading weird fiction — or general horror, in fact — should be reading Richard Gavin, in my opinion. If you haven’t read him, the synopsis for At Fear’s Altar is an excellent summary of him and his work:

Canadian author Richard Gavin has established himself as a leading contemporary writer of weird fiction. His richly nuanced prose style, his imaginative range, and his shrewdness in the portrayal of character and domestic conflict make his tales far more than mere shudder-coining… Gavin again casts a wide imaginative net, from haunted Canadian woodlands to the carnivorous mesas of the American frontier, from Lovecraft’s New England to the spirit traditions of Japan.

You’ll find links to his books on his Amazon page — click here.

Richard Gavin‘s newest book is Sylvan Dread: Tales of Pastoral Darkness:

The twelve tales in Sylvan Dread examine the Sinister Pastoral, the transgressive power emergent from the landscape, the Forlorn Place, and the nightmare-inducing power of its concealed entic forms.
