Michael Hacker / "Vourdalak"

MichaelHackerAuthorPhoto.jpgDark Scribe Press is pleased to announce the inclusion of “Vourdalak,” an original work of short fiction by Michael Hacker, in the Unspeakable Horror: From the Shadows of the Closet anthology.

Michael Hacker was born in the American Midwest. He has worked in a cheese factory, as an actor, a teacher, a meat cutter, and in a series of dismal office jobs. He earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Iowa in 1985, which makes him older than he looks. "Vourdalak" marks his professional writing debut.

He currently lives in Seattle where he is delighted to be employed as a writer/editor for a local game company.

I had the great luck of being a student of Michael Hacker for a few years in Seattle. He's a patient and knowledgeable man of letters with unlimited enthusiasm for his students and storytelling in general. An unforgettable teacher.

Hi Michael,

How are you doing? How can I read Vourdalak? I couldn't figure it out. I'm fine and still in Hong Kong. Are you in MN?
