Ed Grabianowski is an author and freelance writer. He’s worked as a contributing writer for io9.com and HowStuffWorks (you may know him as The Grabster if you’re a Stuff You Should Know fan). His fiction has appeared in Black Static Magazine, David Wellington’s Fear Project, and other publications and anthologies, including Fear After Fear, a collection of his flash horror stories. In his other lives, Ed has driven a race car, designed monsters for fantasy role-playing games, and is the singer and lyricist for a rock band called Spacelord. Ed draws on a wide range of literary, cinematic, and even musical influences to create stories that blend dark fantasy with horror, often depicting the intrusion of the unreal or unimaginable into the lives of previously ordinary people.
