About the Author

Adam McOmber is the author of The White Forest (Touchstone, 2012) and This New & Poisonous Air (BOA Editions, 2011). His work has appeared in Conjunctions, Kenyon Review, and Fairy Tale Review. He was the longtime managing and associate editor for the literary magazine Hotel America at Columbia College Chicago before moving to Los Angeles where he now teaches at Loyola Marymount University.


"In the mode of Shirley Jackson, A. S. Byatt, Kathryn Davis, and Kelly Link, McOmber has fashioned crisply rendered, richly informed and imagined, sorrowful, malevolently erotic, and archly funny campfire tales for grownups." --Booklist
"If Adam McOmber didn't make it clear enough in his first two books of fiction that his imagination knows no bounds, his new collection My House Gathers Desires (BOA Editions) is fresh and certain evidence. His pantry of interests is on full display, is in full play, as he navigates gender and sexuality through the lens of dark dreams, science fiction, medical quackery, and fairy tales. The reader travels from a dark lake in the opening story to a collaboration of voices in the final story who dare us not to imagine sitting around a campfire to hear daring new possibilities of queer story telling." -- Brian Leung, Lambda Literary
"An otherworldly collection of tales rich with mystery, suspense, and eroticism." --Kirkus Reviews
