Michael G. Williams writes wry suburban horror: stories of monsters, macabre humor and the deceptively picturesque. He is the author of the novels Perishables (2012 Laine Cunningham Novel Award), Tooth & Nail, Deal With the Devil, and the forthcoming Attempted Immortality. Michael is on the development team for Wraith: the Oblivion 20th Anniversary Edition and co-creator of the forthcoming fantasy RPG Voistvanost. He has also written a number of short stories across the spectrum of speculative fiction. Michael favors first-person narration for its power to preserve the humor and humanity at the heart of horror.
Michael maintains The Perishables Project, an open-source publishing blog discussing his marketing efforts, and is an avid reader, runner, cyclist and gamer. He and his two cats live in Durham, NC, surrounded by more and better friends than he probably deserves. Michael is a brother in St. Anthony Hall and Mu Beta Psi.
