About Laird Barron

See more books from this Author
Steve Berman writes way too little fiction but does manage to edit at least one anthology every year so his feline companion, Daulton, can be kept content with daily meals of rotisserie chicken. The Wilde Stories annual series has twice been a finalist for the Lambda Literary Awardm which pleases Steve because he does have a great love for queer speculative fiction. He resides in southern New Jersey, the only state in the Union with an official devil.
