DOUGLAS WYNNE wrote his first dark fantasy novel at the age of fifteen but has never found the courage to take it down from the attic and read it. After a long detour through music school, rock bands, and recording studios, he came full circle back to fiction writing and is recently the author of five novels: The Devil of Echo Lake, Steel Breeze, and the SPECTRA Files trilogy (Red Equinox, Black January, and Cthulhu Blues). His recently published and forthcoming short fiction includes stories in the anthologies The Gods of H.P. Lovecraft, Tales from the Miskatonic Library, Shadows Over Main Street 2, and I Am the Abyss. He lives in Massachusetts with his wife and son and a houseful of animals.
