Nathan Ballingrud (nathanballingrud.com) was born in Massachusetts in 1970 but has spent most of his life in the South. He's worked as a bartender in New Orleans and a cook on offshore oil rigs. His stories have appeared in several Year's Best anthologies, and he has twice won the Shirley Jackson Award. His second collection, Wounds: Six Stories from the Border of Hell includes the novella "The Visible Filth" which was filmed by Babak Anvari as Wounds. He lives in Asheville, North Carolina, with his daughter.
"The dark fiction in Grau's first collection is nicely twisted, with stories that play on the best of eldritch horror, creating a sense of dread and the unexplained instead of overt malevolence." - Publishers Weekly "Major new voices don't come along often. This is one. Read it." - Michael Marshall Smith, author of Intruders and The Straw Men ''What's most impressive about T. E. Grau's stunning debut collection is the range of his settings and histories, and of the desperate and authentic voices of his doomed characters. The cumulative effect of these smart, evocative, unsettling creepers is a sense of dread as deep as the secret ocean underneath Nebraska.'' - Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts ''Each story is written with a clear love for language, the prose evocative, heartfelt, and often heartbreaking, providing observations of human nature that are wickedly astute and well considered. The stars must have been right when he wrote this because Grau has created magic here, magic of a very dark kind.'' - Ray Cluley, author of Probably Monsters
