Paul F. Olson
Paul F. Olson has been a professional writer and editor for nearly forty years. "The Night Prophets," originally released by New American Library in 1989, was his first published novel. He is also the author of the dark suspense novel "Alexander's Song," plus many short stories, essays, reviews, interviews, and other works. In the late 1980s, he published and edited Horrorstruck: The World of Dark Fantasy, a trade magazine for horror fans and professionals. With the late David B. Silva, he co-edited the anthologies "Post Mortem: New Tales of Ghostly Horror" and "Dead End: City Limits," and created the award-winning newsletter Hellnotes, which he and Silva edited together for five years. Following Silva's death, he teamed with Richard Chizmar and Brian James Freeman to produce the tribute anthology "Better Weird." Some of his short fiction is available in the collection "Whispered Echoes," which includes the World Fantasy Award-nominated novella "Bloodybones." After spending nearly two decades as a small-town newspaper editor, he returned to his roots with a full-time focus on fiction. He currently lives in Brimley, Michigan, not far from the shores of Lake Superior.
