P.T. Phronk writes about things that don't exist, things that might exist, and things that shouldn't exist. That’s a clever way of saying he writes fantasy, science fiction, and horror.

He received a PhD in psychology after writing a dissertation about what makes horror films frightening. So he literally wrote the book on horror, and continues to create horrific things by cover of night, while by day, he writes about science and technology, helping people out of modern digital nightmares.

P.T. Phronk sometimes just goes by "Phronk." He lives in London, Ontario, and no longer has a dog.

He also wrote Baboon Fart Story, an experiment in publishing. Here is some nice stuff that famous people sarcastically said about Baboon Fart Story:

2018 in Review

Looks like time has chewed away another year from my life.

I had the typical "there were plenty of highs and lows" type of year. I find that at this age (late thirties), both the highs and lows are more profound. For example, people in my age cohort not only have children, but have children that are growing up into actual people. On the flip side, people around me are worn down by time or outrig...

P.T. and 15 other people liked Danger's review of Dominion:
Dominion by Bentley Little
"Holy hell, this book really GOES FOR IT. Literally the most demented "coming of age/young love" story I've ever read. Little takes his time, teasing out the beginning, but once that 3rd act really kicks into gear...well, not many books have the ba..." Read more of this review »

“In the morning there was a big wind blowing and the waves were running high up on the beach and he was awake a long time before he remembered that his heart was broken.”
Ernest Hemingway, The Complete Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway

Stephen King
“The 3 types of terror: The Gross-out: the sight of a severed head tumbling down a flight of stairs, it's when the lights go out and something green and slimy splatters against your arm. The Horror: the unnatural, spiders the size of bears, the dead waking up and walking around, it's when the lights go out and something with claws grabs you by the arm. And the last and worse one: Terror, when you come home and notice everything you own had been taken away and replaced by an exact substitute. It's when the lights go out and you feel something behind you, you hear it, you feel its breath against your ear, but when you turn around, there's nothing there...”
Stephen King

Leonard Delaney
“I want to know what love is. I want you to show me,” said Tyson, grateful that this planet was allowing a foreigner to share this experience with it.”
