He’s also written scripts for stage, screen, and TV. His short story collection, Fearful Symmetries, won the Bram Stoker Award. His omnibus collection of Cemetery Dance columns about writing, genre publishing, television, film, and popular culture entitled The Mothers And Fathers Italian Association won a Stoker for non-fiction. With Elizabeth Monteleone, he is co-editor of the anthology series of imaginative fiction, Borderlandsof which, Volume 5 also won a Bram Stoker Award. He’s also the author of the bestselling The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Writing a Novel. Despite being dragged kicking and screaming into his sixties and losing most of his hair, he still thinks he is dashingly handsome—humor him.


Daniel José Older is a Brooklyn-based writer, editor, and composer. Salsa Nocturna, his debut ghost noir collection, was hailed as “striking and original” by Publishers Weekly. He has facilitated workshops on storytelling, music, and anti-oppression organizing at public schools, religious houses, universities, and prisons.  His short stories and essays have appeared in The New Haven Review,, PANKStrange Horizons, and Crossed Genres among other publications.
