Cassandra Khaw writes horror, video games, tweets for money, articles about video games, and tabletop RPGs. These are not necessarily unrelated items. Her work can be found in professional short story magazines such as Clarkesworld, Fireside Fiction, Uncanny, and Shimmer. Cassandra's first paranormal rom-com Bearly a Lady releases this year. She hopes no one will be very startled by A Song for Quiet when it follows the month after.

I am repped by Michael Curry of Donald Maass Literary Agency.

Oh gosh! <3 My first question on Goodreads and such a lovely one!

Yes, definitely. For now, I'm focused on penny dreadful-style adventures for John Persons, but there'll definitely be more of him to find. In fact, the second Persons Non Grata novella should be out sometime next November from Tor.com! (less)

Oh, gosh. <3 How flattering. Thank you for coming to say hello! (Wouldn't be Jonathan L. Howard, would it? *curious look*)

I'd say Hammers on Bone is probably your best bet, especially if you enjoy weird genre mash-ups. Although if you're hankering for more comedy + horror, I'd wait a tad longer to pick up Food of the Gods! (less)

“The world is made up of rituals. From the way you brush your teeth to how you show obeisance during religious ceremonies, it’s an endless list of interlocking behaviours seared into your unconscious self, charms against the madness of reality.”
Cassandra Khaw, Food of the Gods

“One of the most effective tricks in a gumshoe's playbook is the act of silence. Wait. Let the other guy pull the trigger first. It costs you nothing, and it gets you everything.”
Cassandra Khaw, Hammers on Bone

“The world’s too full of trouble to adopt those that don’t belong to you.”
Cassandra Khaw, Hammers on Bone
