Tales of the Dark Weird Fantastic

Alan Baxter is a multi-award-winning author of horror, supernatural thrillers, and dark fantasy liberally mixed with crime, mystery, and noir. He’s also a martial arts expert, a whisky-soaked swear monkey, and dog lover. He creates dark, weird stories among dairy paddocks on the beautiful south coast of NSW, Australia, where he lives with his wife, son and hound.

“Baxter’s writing is like a Clive Barker and Neil Gaiman cocktail with a shot of Jack Ketchum thrown in.”

“If Stephen King and Jim Butcher ever had a love child then it would be Alan Baxter.”
