Biography

In first grade my teacher asked the class to vote for which book she was going to read to the class next. I voted for something I cannot remember and the entire rest of the class voted for The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.

I have been holding minority opinions and reading epic fantasy ever since.

I used to work in a cubicle farm coding databases and just recently decided I was sick and tired of working for someone else. My wife and I started a business and I decided to get to the writing I'd been thinking about for decades.

I don't know if I am ever going to write anything fantastic but I'm going to keep trying and I'd appreciate it if you came along for the ride.

Smashwords book reviews by Gregory Lynn

  • Nightmare Fuel: Volume 1 on April 29, 2012
    (no rating)
    There are elements of fairly straightforward horror (werewolves, OMG, RUN!) and elements of a more Lovecraftian creepy atmosphere but without the excessive verbiage. That these tales were actually used to stave off nightmares is itself a little creepy. Horror is not my go to genre so while I enjoyed these, if you're a big horror fan, you'll probably like them even more, but if you're prone to nightmares, read 'em over breakfast.
  • Perishables on June 25, 2012

    If Chuck Wendig and Douglas Adams ever had a bastard love child, it might write Perishables. They didn’t, though, and the bastard love child never had a chance so Michael Williams wrote it. It’s about a guy who mostly just wants to be left alone to live his vampiric life but can’t because he’s voted onto the executive board of his homeowner’s association. Then the zombies come and poor Withrow is the only one who can do anything about it and he does so because, well, it’s what he has to do. It’s about a young woman looking to put her IT degree to work who ends up using her machines to zorch some zombies, thus costing herself a job and any chance she ever had at a decent night’s sleep. It’s about the time the two meet at a Black Friday sale. It is delightfully absurd without being trivial. It is at times scathingly satirical but never really cynical. It is funny. It is moving. It is suspenseful. The recipes are surreal. It is well worth your time.
