About Michael Hacker

Michael Hacker made his publishing debut in 2008 with Vourdalak, in Unspeakable Horror: from the Shadows of the Closet (Dark Scribe Press), which thereafter won the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in Anthology. His work will soon be seen in Unspeakable Horror 2: Abominations of Desire and in Butcher Knives and Body Counts, an anthology of essays on the slasher film genre. Michael’s work is not all dark, gothic and Victorian, however. He often surfaces to write for children. His story Mother Comfort’s Great Sugar Blunder for sold over 30,000 copies and he’s currently writing the daily Facebook posts and Twitter feed for Bella Sara. His most recent story is Kundalini Rising in the biopunk anthology Growing Dread, from Timid Pirate Publishing.
