Gerard Houarner

GERARD HOUARNER fell to Earth in the fifties and is a product of the NYC school system and the City College of New York, where he studied writing under Joseph Heller and Joel Oppenheimer and crashed hallucinogenic William Burroughs seminars back in the day. He went on to earn a couple of master’s degrees in psychology from Columbia University so he could earn a living. He’s worked in Hell’s Kitchen, on the Lower East Side at the beginning of the AIDS epidemic, and in the Bronx at the start of the crack epidemic before settling into a quiet, contemplative and genteel career as an uncivil servant at a psychiatric hospital.

His publishing career includes four novels — a three book series about Max, a supernatural assassin, and a fantasy — and over 280 short stories, with over 50 earning Honorable Mentions in various editions of St. Martin’s Press’ Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror and Best Horror of the Year anthologies, with dozens gathered into four collections. He has edited and co-edited three anthologies, and serves as Fiction Editor for Space and Time Magazine.
