Meet the Author

Mark Leslie is a writer, editor and bookseller living in Hamilton, Ontario.


Mark's writing falls most closely into the "Twilight Zone" camp of fiction - he calls himself a horror writer but his tales include horror, elements of science fiction and fantasy.


Mark's first published horror story "Phantom Mitch" appeared in Wicked Mystic magazine in October of 1993 and received honourable mention in The Year's Best Fantasty & Horror #7 (Datlow & Windling).


Since then, Mark has had dozens of speculative stories published in various magazines and anthologies including Stardust (edited by Julie E. Czerneda), Bound for Evil (edited by Tom English), Bluffs (edited by Lawrence Steven) and Fear of the Dark (edited by Maria Cavicchiolo & Jason Rolfe).


In 2004, Mark collected some of his previously published works in One Hand Screaming. In 2006, he edited North of Infinity II, an anthology of speculative stories for Mosaic Press. In 2009 Mark edited Campus Chills, a themed anthology featuring horror tales set on colleges & universities across Canada.


Mark has three books due out in 2012:


Haunted Hamilton (Non-Fiction)


Tesseracts 16 (Editor - Sci Fi Anthology)


I, Death (novel - horror)

    I liked both of these stories. Writing about snowmen is both different and unique. I hope he writes some more snowmen stories.

    Chilling

    2 shorts about the horrors of being a snowman, plus the author gives us the lowdown on each story, and then we get a sample of another book called Spirits. As for the two shorts, not bad but not great, just an ok read.
