Jon Bassoff

USA flag (b.1974)

Jon Bassoff was born in 1974 in New York City and currently lives with his family and a sickly greyhound in a ghost town somewhere in Colorado. His mountain gothic novel, Corrosion, was called "startlingly original and unsettling" by Tom Piccirilli, a four-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award, and won the DarkFuse Readers Choice Award for best novel. His surrealistic follow-up, Factory Town, was called "A hallucinatory descent into an urban hell" by Bram Stoker award-winning author Ramsey Campbell. For his day job, Bassoff teaches high school English where he is known by students and faculty alike as the deranged writer guy. He is a connoisseur of tequila, hot sauces, psychobilly music, and flea-bag motels.

Jon Bassoff recommends
Stormland (2021)
John Shirley
"Stormland portrays human tenacity and ingenuity within a Hobbesian universe. John Shirley has created a vivid, hurricane-soaked canvas and a cast of memorable characters...A feat of dystopian imagination, Stormland cements Shirley's voice in the upper echelon of the cyberpunk genre."
