About the Author
T.E. Grau is an author of dark fiction whose work has been featured in dozens of anthologies, magazines, literary journals, and audio platforms.

Grau lives in Los Angeles with his wife and daughter, and can be found in the ether at The Cosmicomicon.

"A sense of being hunted, and haunted, hits you right from the start of I Am The River. That mood only grows in intensity as the scope of this novel's nightmare takes shape. It's supernatural and geopolitical and an unforgettable time." - Victor LaValle, author The Ballad of Black Tom

"Grau's poetic prose and stunning evocation of time and place...from the killing fields of Vietnam to the haunted alleyways of Bangkok, form a fever dream of copious bloodshed and many shades of gray." - Publishers Weekly, starred review

"I Am The River is the kind of thing that might happen if Algernon Blackwood had been brought in to do a rewrite of Apocalypse Now. A man barely holding onto his sanity in Bangkok remains haunted, stalked by a huge hound and undone by his own addiction. His only way out is through revisiting his past in the Vietnam War and the secret PSY-OPS mission he was involved in-and which he's been running from ever since. A haunting meditation on war, death, addiction, and responsibility, with mindblowing forays into the weird." - Brian Evenson, author of A Collapse of Horses and The Warren

"T.E. Grau's blazing, immersive novel takes us on the hell-ride of the Vietnam War's last days as its raging waters also carry us through the first of our last days. I Am The River is a hallucinatory tour de force." - Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World

"An intelligent accumulation of inner and outer darkness." - Adam Nevill, author of The Ritual

"A lush green nightmarish journey into the dark, reminiscent of the late, great Lucius Shepard." - Ben Loory, author of Tales of Falling and Falling
