USA flag (b.1969)

Victor Gischler is the author of the Edgar-nominated Gun Monkeys as well as The Pistol Poets, Suicide Squeeze and Shotgun Opera. He now lives in the wilds of Skiatook, Oklahoma but was born and raised in Florida, attending high school in Ocala and earning his BA at the University of Central Florida in Orlando (where he minored in creative writing.) His work has been translated into French, Italian, Spanish and Japanese. A recovering academic, Victor would gladly return to teaching if he could weasel himself one of those gigs where he teaches a group of student writers in Prague or London.

Kill Monster (2019)
Sean Doolittle
"With heart, humor, genuine thrills, an intriguing premise, and a cinematic climax guaranteed to keep you turning pages, Kill Monster is the Sean Doolittle novel you've been waiting for. It's hardly my job to tell Simon Pegg what his next film project should be . . . but it should be this."
thumb
The Blade This Time (2017)
Jon Bassoff
"Creepy, intriguing, compelling and well-crafted, Bassoff's novel is the kind of thing you didn't realize you were looking for until you're already up to your neck in it. And by then you're hooked."
