Lynda E. Rucker

 

Lynda E. Rucker grew up in a house in the woods in the southeastern United States full of books, cats, and typewriters, so naturally she had little choice but to become a writer. She has sold more than three dozen short stories to various magazines and anthologies including F&SF, Nightmare Magazine, The Year’s Best Horror, The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror, The Year’s Best Horror and Dark Fantasy, Supernatural Tales, and Postscripts among others and has had a short play produced as part of an anthology of horror plays on London’s West End. She won the 2015 Shirley Jackson Award for Best Short Story, collaborated on a short comic that appears in the horror anthology Outside, and is a regular columnist for UK horror magazine Black Static. Her first collection, The Moon Will Look Strange, was released in 2013 from Karōshi Books and her second, You’ll Know When You Get There, was published by Swan River Press in 2016.
