Born in Missouri, growing up in Ohio, and settling in Chicago, D. T. Neal has always written fiction, but only got really serious about it in the late 90s. He brings a strong Rust Belt perspective to his writing, a kind of "Northern Gothic" aesthetic reflective of his background.

Writing his first novel at 29, he then devoted time to his craft and worked on short stories, occupying a space between genre and literary fiction, with an emphasis on horror, science fiction, and fantasy. He has seen some of his short stories published in "Albedo 1," Ireland's premier magazine of speculative fiction, and he won second place in their Aeon Award in 2008 for his short story, "Aegis." He has lived in Chicago since 1993, and is a passionate fan of

What's Coming

What's coming down the pike from me? I'm looking to get the sequel to SAAMAANTHAA published in the fall (ideally around Halloween). It's entitled THE HAPPENING.

Also, look for one of two short story collections to appear before the end of the year. The first volume is entitled REVENANCE -- it'll cover much of my horror and weird short fiction.

The next one will appear sometime in 2015, and will c... Read more of this blog post »

The Fiends in the Furrows by David T. Neal
"This book was sent to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I cannot get enough of horror folklore. I think I've read more folklore this year than ever, and I still want more. There's just something so appealing about stories that h..." Read more of this review »

"Reading The Fiends in the Furrows: An Anthology of Folk Horror is like finding some ancient confession sprawled on inquisition parchment -- a dark and mesmerizing account of oddities long forgotten. Like something whispered in the cornfield. Or a..." Read more of this review »

“Middling monsters died at the point of pitchforks, burned with torches, or at the butt of silver-capped canes wielded by angry, geriatric Poles. Middling people were dime-a-dozen, emptied souls, shorn sheeple, human husks. A good monster didn’t worry about what it was doing; it just did it. A true predator didn’t worry about guilt, or being popular, or anything. It just cruised along, living for the kill, surviving. A good person, well, she’d put a bullet in her head or weigh her feet down and throw herself into the Chicago River, holding her breath until she went to the sludgy, filthy bottom, and had to open wide and breathe water until she died.”
