Brian James Freeman
Brian James Freeman's novels, novellas, short stories, interviews, and essays have been published by Warner Books, Cemetery Dance Publications, Borderlands Press, Book-of-the-Month Club, Leisure, and many others.
His newest book-length work of fiction is The Painted Darkness, which took the Internet by storm during the summer of 2010 and was published in hardcover in December 2010 by Cemetery Dance Publications. Due to overwhelming demand from booksellers, the first printing went out of print on the day of publication and Cemetery Dance rushed a second printing. The Painted Darkness was also offered as the "Free eBook of the Month" by WOWIO.com in October 2010, and within two weeks it became the most downloaded title in the program's history. Brian is also the author of Blue November Storms, Black Fire, and The Illustrated Stephen King Trivia Book (with Bev Vincent.)
Brian's short fiction has appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies including From the Borderlands (Warner Books), Borderlands 5 (Borderlands Press), Corpse Blossoms (Creeping Hemlock Press), and all six volumes of the acclaimed Shivers anthology series (Cemetery Dance Publications).
His essays, columns, and interviews have been published in The Stephen King Library Desk Calendar 2009 (Book of the Month Club), The Stephen King Library Desk Calendar 2010 (Book of the Month Club), Jobs in Hell, Hellnotes, and Cemetery Dance.
Brian is currently the general manager of Cemetery Dance Publications.
