About the Author

Terence Hawkins was raised in Fayette County, PA, a former coal hub later distinguished as the setting for the original Night of the Living Dead and American Rust. He graduated from Yale, where he was Publisher of the Yale Daily News, and received a law degree from the University of Wisconsin. In 2012 he became the founding Director of the Yale Writers' Conference, which he developed and managed through 2015. He is now the Director of the Company of Writers and Prose Editor of Blue Mountain Review. His first novel, The Rage of Achilles, is a realistic and sometimes brutal account of the Iliad based on the theory of the bicameral mind. Tom Perrotta called it a "genuinely fresh take on a classic text." In naming it a Year's Best, Kirkus Reviews called his second, American Neolithic, "a towering work of speculative fiction." He lives in Connecticut.

Reviews

"These thirteen powerful, well-crafted stories by Hawkins (American Neolithic, 2019) have been aptly compared to The Twilight Zone: they offer a similar sense of dread and moral disquiet. These are tales of how things go wrong. Though it is marketed as a speculative fiction title, fewer than half are explicitly sf. . . . In the end, though, genre is irrelevant. Hawkins tells tales that fascinate him, and they provide a beautiful reading experience." -- Booklist

"Turing's Graveyard is a collection of provocative and mesmerizing short stories that force the reader to confront the nature of life and death, intimacy and indifference and even the boundaries of reality itself. Hawkins writes with a passionate indifference about his characters and their experiences that perfectly encapsulates the isolation and disconnectedness of modern life. Brilliant." - Tonya Hurley New York Times and international bestselling author.

"Extraordinary stories that will make readers laugh, shiver, or perhaps both." -- STARRED Kirkus Review.
