Introduction ERIC J. GUIGNARD is a writer and editor of dark and speculative fiction, operating from the shadowy outskirts of Los Angeles, where he also runs the small press, Dark Moon Books.

He has over 100 stories and non-fiction author credits appearing in publications around the world. His latest books are his novel Doorways to the Deadeye and short story collection That Which Grows Wild: 16 Tales of Dark Fiction (Cemetery Dance). Outside the glamorous and jet-setting world of indie fiction, Eric’s a technical writer and college professor, and he stumbles home each day to a wife, children, dogs, and a terrarium filled with mischievous beetles.
