Stephen Kozeniewski lives in Pennsylvania, the birthplace of the modern zombie. During his time as a Field Artillery officer he served for three years in Oklahoma and one in Iraq, where, due to what he assumes was a clerical error, he was awarded the Bronze Star. He is also a classically trained linguist, which sounds much more impressive than saying his bachelor’s is in German.

The Perfectly Fine House by Stephen Kozeniewski
"I wasn’t sure what I was expecting when I picked this up. It’s a bit hard to classify – a little horror, a little urban fantasy, a lot of fun.

The world the authors create is fascinating – it starts out so compelling and kind of delightful. It ends up" Read more of this review »
