Ben Guilfoy was born and raised in Massachusetts, where he found an intense love of various foods and a seething hatred of snow. But since an early age, he had an interest in stories of all kinds (but mostly the fantastical kinds). He studied English and Communications/Journalism at Framingham State College (now University) and currently works at an online news publication in New York City.

E.M. Forster
“It isn't possible to love and part. You will wish that it was. You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you. I know by experience that the poets are right: love is eternal.”
E.M. Forster, A Room with a View

Richard Matheson
“Full circle. A new terror born in death, a new superstition entering the unassailable fortress of forever. I am legend.”
Richard Matheson, I Am Legend

Ray Bradbury
“I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.”
Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing

Alan Moore
“My experience of life is that it is not divided up into genres; it’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you're lucky.”
Alan Moore
