Ken Goldman

Ken Goldman is a  former Philadelphia teacher of English and Film Studies, and he has taught courses on Horror and Science Fiction in Film & Literature. An affiliate member of the Horror Writers Association, Ken has homes on the Main Line in Pennsylvania and at the Jersey shore depending upon the track of the sun and his need for a tan. His stories appear in over 865 independent press publications in the U.S., Canada, the UK, and Australia, and over thirty of Ken's tales are due for publication in 2017. Since 1993 his stories have received seven honorable mentions in The Year’s Best Fantasy & Horror. He has written six books : his anthologies of short stories, You Had Me at ARRGH!!   (Sam's Dot Publishers),  Donny Doesn't Live Here Anymore (A/A Publishers),  plus an e-book, Star Crossed (Vampires 2 Publications); and a novella, Desiree (Damnation Books, reprinted for Kindle  by eXcessica Publishing). His novel, Of a Feather, was published by Horrific Tales Publications (UK) in January 2014, and his new novel, Sinkhole, is due late summer 2017 by Bloodshot Books. 

Ken's stories haven't made him famous yet.  He expects that to happen posthumously, after which universities worldwide will make GOLDMAN 101 a mandatory course for future writers. Okay, maybe not, but for now, you may find many of Ken's stories online and at Stop by and scream hello.

Ken's story, "Fat Larry's Night With the Alligators," was published in Uncommon Assassins.
