C. Michael Cook / "The Boys of Bald Cave"

CMichaelCook-HeadshotSmall.jpgDark Scribe Press is pleased to announce the inclusion of “The Boys of Bald Cave,” an original work of short fiction by C. Michael Cook, in the Unspeakable Horror: From the Shadows of the Closet anthology.

C. Michael Cook hails from Knoxville, Iowa and grew up loving books, television and movies. Especially the scary stuff. In high school, he was a drama nerd, and later attended the University of Iowa, graduating with a B.A. in Broadcasting and Film. After college, he moved to Chicago to work in advertising. In addition to copywriting positions at some of the city's top agencies, he wrote numerous magazine articles, and was the lead content producer at Oprah.com from 1995-2000.

His debut story, "Unto the Sons, the Daughters," was published by The Baybury Review and subsequently nominated for the enduring Pushcart Prize. Following an absence from writing - during which he became a usability professional, bought a house and did other grown-up things - he returned to writing fiction. "The Boys of Bald Cave" marks that return.

He currently live s in Chicago, where he enjoys running along the lakefront, and books, television and movies. Especially the scary stuff.
