Thomas S. Gunther enjoys reading and writing fiction of all kinds, though he is partial to horror. Like the original American horror writer, Edger Allen Poe, he favors the short story over longer works, though he is currently working on a novel (or two), as well. He is employed as an aquatic transfer engineer on a tree farm but also works as a writer/editor for occasional private clients. While his parents had hoped he would pursue his artistic talents, he chose to draw with words instead, having been inspired by various writers, including but not limited to, Jack London, Harlan Ellison, John Lindqvist, and Clive Barker. In turn, his work may be described as being a mix of brutality, dark humor, and the macabre. Several of his short stories have recently made it into print within the pages of various anthologies with other publishers. Stories published here may come and go--many were recently pulled in hopes of being placed elsewhere. However, new stories may be added in the near future. When not working or writing, Thomas S. Gunther spends his days helping his beautiful wife around their home in Kalamazoo, MI, making sure the dog doesn't eat the youngest grandson, eat the flowers, or dig up the cats buried in the backyard.
