It’s almost Thanksgiving, but before we enter the holiday season in earnest, we have one more treat for you in 2015. The fare we serve will not be fowl, but a much more disturbing meal. Come with us and see what dark imaginings our authors dish out.
Stephen Jay Schwartz – Los Angeles Times Bestselling Author Stephen Jay Schwartz spent a number of years as the Director of Development for Wolfgang Petersen where he worked to develop screenplays for production.
His two novels, Boulevard and Beat, follow the journey of sex-addicted LAPD detective Hayden Glass.
Stephen was a judge for the 2012 Edgar and ITW Awards, and is currently judging the mystery-thriller section for the Los Angeles Book Prize. His work will be included in a short story collection with T.C. Boyle, to be published by Red Hen Press in 2016.
Chrome Oxide – A few years ago, because of inadequate discouragement, Chrome Oxide started writing twisted science fiction and fantasy short stories. Since he started writing he has been torturing the Orange County Science Fiction Writers Orbit by learning two bad habits for every one he fixed. He has contributed a short piece to each of their annual chapbooks since 2012. He even managed to get a short story published in volume 29 of the Writers of the Future. He so enjoys writing that even when he is recording bands in clubs he can be found with a microphone in one hand and a manuscript to be edited in the other. Because one of his first submitted stories was accepted, he has been collecting rejection slips to make up for that. Details of his career, such as it is, can be found at his author site, www.chromeoxide.com/writer/

His fiction has appeared in two Bram Stoker Award nominated anthologies, and his collection The Dark at the End of the Tunnel, was just released by legendary publisher Cemetery Dance Publications.
