Peter Giglio - When Peter Giglio isn't writing or editing, he plays with fire, juggles clowns, and dirty dances with the benevolent ghost of Patrick Swayze. Thankfully, he writes and edits all the time. He is the author of the horror novel Anon and the acclaimed vampire novella A Spark in the Darkness. Forthcoming works include the zombie novella Balance and the novel The Dark (with Scott Bradley). Peter and Scott have also written a currently unproduced feature-length screenplay adaptation of Joe R. Lansdale's classic short story "The Night They Missed the Horror Show."
You can find several of Peter's short stories in anthologies, including Werewolves and Shapeshifters: Encounters with the Beast Within, edited by John Skipp, and Live and Let Undead, edited by Hollie Snider. Peter is also the editor of the horror anthology Help! Wanted: Tales of On-the-Job Terror, featuring stories by Stephen Volk, Joe McKinney, Jeff Strand, Lisa Morton, Vince A. Liaguno, David Dunwoody Eric Shaprio, Amy Wallace, and many more.
