Erik T Johnson

SpecFic Writer
I am an author from Brooklyn, NYC, whose work has appeared in many excellent literary periodicals and anthologies, including all volumes of Written Backwards' Chiral Mad series, and the #1 Amazon bestseller, I Can Taste the Blood, a five-author novella collection including Josh Malerman, John F.D. Taff, J. Daniel Stone and Joe Schwartz.

My own short-fiction collection, Yes Trespassing, has been well-received by the press and authors alike. This Is Horror UK said that "Erik T. Johnson delivers a magnum opus of staggering proportions and epic concepts of literary strangeness . . .Yes Trespassing is one of the best, most beautifully written collections of this or any other year" and that "Erik T. Johnson is writing at a level that all authors, new and veteran alike, should aspire to. Because what Johnson has achieved with Yes Trespassing is nothing less than absolute greatness." Josh Malerman called the book “Electric” and John Boden called it “Brilliance unfettered and unscarred by convention.”

I have also been asked to perform readings with such noted authors as Bram-Stoker Lifetime-Achievement-winning poet Linda Addison and New York Times bestselling author Mary Gaitskill, among a wide variety of other authors.
