Syrus Durham


Syrus Durham first started writing short stories and keeping track of them in high school, churning out a short story every few weeks. They were only a few pages long and handwritten in pencil on unlined notepads, but everyone starts somewhere! Even back then, he wrote about weird or fantastic events happening to normal people. Over time, he wrote longer and longer stories until he was finally able to sustain a novel-length plot.

He enjoys reading science fiction, fantasy, and contemporary fiction—as long as the plot, themes, and characters are compelling and/or quirky fun.
