John F.D. Taff is a multiple Bram Stoker Award®-nominated author with more than 30 years’ in the horror genre, 150-plus short stories and five novels in print. He’s worked at a science museum, at an ad agency, swept plant floors, edited trade journals and was even a professional marionettist for four years.  Little Deaths was named the best horror fiction collection of 2012 by HorrorTalk. Jack Ketchum called his novella collection, The End in All Beginnings, “one of the best novella collections I’ve read,” and it was a finalist for a Stoker Award in 2014.  A short story from his latest collection Little Black Spots, “A Winter’s Tale,” was a finalist for a Stoker in 2019.  Ain’t It Cool News called his novel The Bell Witch “A compelling and frightening read.”  His serial novel The Fearing released in 2019 to critical and reader acclaim.  Robert R. McCammon called it “A powerful and epic trip into the land of feardom!”, while Josh Malerman, author of Bird Box, said “Taff’s best book to date. A modern master at play.”  Look for more of his work in anthologies such as Orphans of Bliss and The Hideous Book of Hidden Horrors.  Taff lives in the wilds of Illinois with two pugs, one cats, and a long-suffering wife.
