Nick Mamatas

Nick Mamatas lives in Jersey City and is actually starting to like it. He is the author of the Bram Stoker Award-nominated short novel Northern Gothic (Soft Skull, 2001, reviewed elsewhere on this site by John Grant) and several inconsequential short stories, some of which have appeared in mainstream publications like the men's magazine Razor, the NYC-based monthly Wide Angle, and the underground zines The Whirligig, Ragshock, and Pablo's Comics Extravaganza. On the genre side of things, different stories, and sometimes the same exact stories that have appeared in the literary pubs, have been published in the Hugo-nominated webzine Strange Horizons,,, Talebones and the forthcoming anthology Strange Pleasures Vol. 2 (Prime Books).

When not writing fantasy and horror, which is 99% of the time, Nick writes about radical politics, publishing, digital art and fringe cultural phenomena for the Village Voice, In These Times, Razor, Silicon Alley Reporter, Artbyte and the Disinformation Books anthologies You Are Being Lied To, Everything You Know Is Wrong and the forthcoming Abuse Your Illusions. With Kap Su Seol, he is the translator of Kwangju Diary (UCLA APM, 1999), the definitive study of South Korea's 1980 Kwangju Uprising and the subsequent US-backed massacre that ended it.
