Call me Dave. I blog here about my family life with my wife, daughter, and son and also about my personal struggles, triumphs, and frustrations as very small time SF/F/horror writer living in LA. (Which is a really nice way of me saying I bitch a lot about writing.) Recently, I also became the Co-Editor of everyone's favorite PodCastle - the world's first audio magazine dedicated to fantasy fiction.
I'm kind of a religous nut -- though not in the typical sense. I think Fox Mulder and Bono are the next wave disciples -- the real latter day saints. And I have an unhealthy obsession with the TV show "Lost."
I've written stories about vampires taking communion, kids who become superheroes, terrorist saints, serial killer prophets, Saint Darwin, the post-apocalypse view from Hawaii, and puritan noir (as if there was any other kind). Some of which have been published, some of which will hopefully be published in the not-too distant future.
Here's what other people have said about my stories:
"Dave Thompson...manages to be gross, touching, funny and twisted all at once." -- Cory Doctorow
"I really enjoyed ["Last Respects"]. When I meet Dave Thompson, I’m going to kick him in the nuts for making me choke up on the recording." -- Scott Sigler
"You, sir, are ronin, the masterless internet samurai. I could not possibly command powers as vast and wild as your own." -- Matt Wallace (to me)
