Editor in Chief
Ferndale, Michigan
Michael Cieslak is a lifetime reader and writer of horror, mystery, and speculative fiction. A native of Detroit, he still lives within 500 yards of the city with his wife and their two dogs Tesla and Titus. The house is covered in Halloween decorations in October and dragons the rest of the year. He is an officer in the Great Lakes Association of Horror Writers. His works have appeared in a number of collections including DOA: Extreme Horror, Dead Science, Vicious Verses and Reanimated Rhymes, the GLAHW anthologies, and Alter Egos Vol 1. He is the former Literature Track Head for Penguicon.

Michael’s most recent endeavor is the Dragon’s Roost Press imprint which published it’s first anthology Desolation, 21 Tales for Tails in 2014. Other titles include The Maiden’s Courage by Mary Lynne Gibbs, Eldritch Embraces: Putting the Love Back in Lovecraft, and Hell Hath No Fury by Peggy Christie. Their 2017 publication schedule includes Jericho Rising and Jericho’s Redemption by Mary Lynne Gibbs, Sex, Gore, & Millipedes by Ken MacGregor, and a yet to be named anthology of Cryptid fiction.
