Rob Thurman is currently writing three series for Penguin Putnam's imprint ROC FANTASY, as well as a brand-new mainstream series for Simon & Schuster's POCKET BOOKS.
Rob has also written for a Charlaine Harris & Toni L.P. Kelner Anthology, WOLFSBANE AND MISTLETOE. This year, Rob contributed a post-apocalyptic, "grim" faerie tale Western to the anthology, COURTS OF THE FEY.

Rob's work is dark, non-stop action from beginning to end, rife with purely evil sarcasm as sharp as a switchblade - and probably nearly as illegal. If one shoved LORD OF THE RINGS,
THE SHINING, and PULP FICTION into a wood-chipper, the result would be what Rob aims to deliver in a novel or short story.

Basilisk by Rob Thurman
"Seq to Chimera. This series is shaping up to be as good as the Cal Leandros series (and is very similar in themes - ie brothers (view spoiler)) especially now that Misha takes the hot seat. He's part Cal, part Zeke (from Trick of the Li" Read more of this review »
Basilisk by Rob Thurman
"Loved It.
Jam packed with all the things I love in books guns, action, brothers and a ferret! Had me on my toes to the end of the book and then became sad as I realised that I had finished and may have to wait a while before the next book. sigh.
Anyway" Read more of this review »

"The second book in the Chimera series is just as fast paced and interesting as the first one. This time around we get Misha's perspective on the situation and he's really grown in the three years since the end of Chimera; at least he's certain he has" Read more of this review »

“I have people in my life, of course. Some write; some don't. Some read; some don't. Some stare vacantly into space when I talk the geeky talk and walk the geeky walk, but they make killer chocolate chip pancakes and so all is forgiven.”
Rob Thurman

“When life gives you lemons. . . You might as well shove 'em where the sun don't shine, because you sure as hell aren't ever going to see any lemonade.”
Rob Thurman, Nightlife

“Pick up your clothes. I am not your maid. How do I know this? A maid cannot kill you with a tube sock. I can. ”
