Charles Austin Muir is the author of SLIPPERY WHEN METASTASIZED and the Splatterpunk Award-nominated THIS IS A HORROR BOOK. He writes weird shit with references you don't need to recognize to have fun with it. Depending on his mood, he's horror/bizarro/literary with a side of Chicken Soup for the Soul. He was a straightforward horror writer before he ventured into the realm of the bizarre and absurd, with short stories published in magazines and anthologies throughout the US and UK.
By day, he has worked as an obituary writer, humor columnist, fitness writer, and personal trainer. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife, pugs, and pit-lab.
