Edmund Glasby

Edmund Glasby

As penance for past deeds, Edmund Glasby grew up in Morecambe and studied Egyptian Archaeology at University College London and Archaeology and Anthropology at Oxford - Morecambe, which has more than its share of the strange and unsavoury, provided him with a better education. After turning his back on academia, he now writes in the genres of dark fantasy and supernatural thriller, having been brought up on horror; his father was John S. Glasby the prolific supernatural fiction writer.

In 2010, his first novel was Disciple of a Dark God, a far-ranging dark fantasy epic. His first collection of all-new supernatural stories, The Dyrysgol Horror and Others was published by Borgo in 2013, and was followed by The Ash Murders, The Chaos of Chung-Fu, Ghouls of the Undercity, Labyrinth of the Lost, Dark Shadows, Angels of Death and a novel, The Weird Shadow Over Morecambe. For his UK publishers, Ulverscroft and Endeavour Press, he has also written four macabre detective thrillers, A Murder Most Macabre, The Postbox Murders, The Doppelgänger Deaths, and Where Blood Runs Deep.

When he is not writing he is the captain of a local archery club and he has won a trophy or two both at local and European level with the English longbow he made.
