Michael A. Arnzen
Michael A. Arnzen won the Bram Stoker Award and the International Horror Guild Award for his novel, Grave Markings, in 1995. He teaches creative writing at Seton Hill University, located outside of Pittsburgh, where he now resides with his wife Renate and several cats. His poetry has appeared everywhere in the genre press over the past decade. His poetry books include Freakcidents, Sportuary, Dying, Chew, and Writhing in Darkness. A new collection of a hundred short-short stories, entitled 100 Jolts, will appear in 2004 from Raw Dog Screaming Press. E-book versions of his work are distributed through Fictionwise.com.
Double-Dragon's edition of Arnzen's GORELETS: Unpleasant Poems features 21 bonus poems unavailable elsewhere...not even in the print edition from Fairwood Press.
