Introduction Vince Liaguno is the Bram Stoker Award-winning editor of UNSPEAKABLE HORROR: FROM THE SHADOWS OF THE CLOSET (Dark Scribe Press 2008), an anthology of queer horror fiction, which he co-edited with Chad Helder, its sequel UNSPEAKABLE HORROR 2: ABOMINATIONS OF DESIRE (Evil Jester Press, 2017), and BUTCHER KNIVES & BODY COUNTS, a collection of essays on the formula, frights, and fun of the slasher film. Most recently, he edited OTHER TERRORS: AN INCLUSIVE ANTHOLOGY (William Morrow Paperbacks, 2022), an HWA anthology of short fiction that he co-edited with Rena Mason. That collection has received widespread critical acclaim, including starred reviews from PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, BOOKLIST, and KIRKUS.

His debut novel, 2006’s THE LITERARY SIX, was a tribute to the slasher films of the 80’s and won an Independent Publisher Award (IPPY) for Horror and was named a finalist in ForeWord Magazine’s Book of the Year Awards.

He currently lives in the beautiful "Mitten State" of Michigan. He is a member—and former Secretary—of the Horror Writers Association (HWA) and the National Book Critics Circle (NBCC).
