Darren Speegle is the author of five short story collections, the latest of which, A Haunting in Germany and Other Stories, is out now from PS Publishing. His horror novel The Third Twin is due in April from Crystal Lake Publishing. Auroram, a science fiction short novel, is coming in 2017 as well. His short fiction has appeared in numerous venues, including Subterranean, Postscripts, Crimewave, Clarkesworld, The Third Alternative (now Black Static), Fantasy, Cemetery Dance, and Subterranean: Tales of Dark Fantasy. He has recently become interested in editing, and his human-evolution-themed anthology Adam’s Ladder has been picked up by Dark Regions/Written Backwards for a mid 2017 release. A widely traveled American, Darren often sets his stories in interesting or exotic places where he has lived (Germany, Alaska, Southeast Asia) or otherwise explored (broader Europe). Between gigs as a federal contractor in the Middle East, Darren resides in Thailand, where he is touching up his cross-genre novel The World Is My Oyster.
