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:

2017 is generally regarded as a bad year, but for me, it was fine. Time moved on from last year's celebrity death apocalypse to threats of actual apocalypse, but personally, I managed to avoid any direct effects. I can't pretend that Canada is immune from the growing evil in the United States, yet it hasn't manifested in ruining my life in any significant ways. My first full year as a science w...

The Gift is a well-written novella about a family dealing with loss, in a story spanning several generations. Feel-good inspirational stories aren’t normally my thing, but this one avoids some cliches that could have made it overly sappy, so I enjoye ...more

I’ve read most of Mark Rayner’s books, and I’d say this is his best yet. It could be described as dystopian, but it takes places in a world right next door to our own, in which fat-phobia is taken just a little bit further than it is today. The strug ...more

Ernest Hemingway
“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

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.”
Leonard Delaney, Pounded by Pluto: The Crappiest Planet
