Cory Skerry lives in Bellingham in a spooky old house that he doesn’t like to admit is haunted. When he’s not inventing new genres in which to write novels or drawing guerrilla comics, he goes exploring with his sweet, goofy pit bulls.

He loves genre fiction, and his stories have appeared in places such as Fantasy Magazine, Strange Horizons, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies. He is a survivor–er, graduate–of the Viable Paradise and Clarion West workshops. If you submit stories to Shimmer Magazine or, he’ll see them before the editors do (so don’t say mean things about pit bulls).

If this whole starving artist thing doesn’t work out for him, he’ll use a time machine to become a highwayman in the 1700s, because Jonny Lee Miller made it look hot.
