Tell us about your latest release in five words or fewer, or in one image/gif.


What book do you wish more people knew about?

Shrinking The Heroes by Minister Faust or Dreadnought by April Daniels.

en-lightningWhat was the first story you ever wrote?

“Who Bears The Lathe?” It was a short, post-apocalyptic story published in a now defunct magazine about an interrogation performed by a menacing cyborg on a rebellious woman.

What appeals to you about the genre you work in? (or a genre you work in?)

Anything is possible! Speculative fiction is a wild smear across all genres of storytelling. Much like horror, it can be a part of anything!

What do you like to listen to when you write?

Just about anything that doesn’t have lyrics. Ugh. Singing, rapping, any sort of human vocalizations tend to distract me.

Errick Nunnally was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, and served one tour in the Marine Corps before deciding art school was a safer pursuit. He enjoys art, comics, and genre novels. A designer by day, he earned a black belt in Krav Maga and Muay Thai kickboxing by night. His work has appeared in several anthologies and is best described as “dark pulp.” His work can be found in LAMPLIGHT, TRANSCENDENT, WICKED WITCHES, THE FINAL SUMMONS, PROTECTORS 2, the Podcast, NIGHTLIGHT, and the ChiZine novel, LIGHTNING WEARS A RED CAPE.
