Thomas S. Gunther


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, Stephen King, and Clive Barker. In turn, his work may be described as being a mix of brutality, dark humor, and the macabre. The stories showcased here are just a sampling of the many he has written. Three of his short stories have recently made it into print within the pages of three separate anthologies with another publisher (whose initials are HBB). While not stabbing at his novel(s), Thomas works diligently on a collection--long overdue--of short stories entitled, "Mumbling Darkly," (sharing the same name as his Wordpress page), which he hopes to publish soon, possibly 2019). He has one son from a previous relationship (very handsome and much brighter than his father), and two older kids, and several grandchildren via his second marriage. 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.
