Meet our readers: Daniel Braum


Daniel Braum is the author of The Night Marchers and Other Strange Tales, his 2016 debut collection full of stories that mix and transcend genre. His writing has been described as full of sadness, beauty, and unprecedented wonder; two cups of literary dark fiction, a heaping scoop of magical realism and urban fantasy, a tablespoon of horror. His 2016 sold-out Yeti. Tiger. Dragon., from Dim Shores Press, is being reprinted by Necon E-Books in 2017. His second collection, The Wish Mechanics: Stories of the Strange and Fantastic, is coming in 2017 and contains stories with his unique blend of speculative fiction that effortlessly blends fantasy, science fiction, mysticism and horror in every verse.

Braum's characters explore the multi-dimensional vistas and dark worlds of spiritualism, and struggle with concepts of advanced science that collide with magical realism in an effort to explain the unexplainable. His short stories have appeared in publications ranging from Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet and Electric Velocipede to Cemetery Dance Magazine. Lucius Shepard, Kelly Link, Robert Aickman, and Tanith Lee are among his favorite authors. He is the host of the Night Time Logic reading series in New York.

Please join Daniel and all our incredible readers for Line Break #8, Saturday, June 3, 3:00 p.m. at Q.E.D. in Astoria. Tickets are only 7 bucks!
