My name is David Emery and I am an author.
As of the time of this writing I have two published short stories, one prestigious honorable mention, and have served in the trenches as a writing contest judge.
My work is predominantly fantasy, horror, and science fiction. And while I cannot guarantee that you will like everything that I write, I can guarantee every story that escapes my brain is lovingly bludgeoned until something truly special is forged.
Feel free to look around the site. There's bound to be interesting tidbits, pretty pictures, and maybe even a story or two.
See? I told you there would be stories and you didn't even have to scroll far. I am a man of my word, dear reader.
You will find a variety of stories here. Some of them have been published before, others are exclusive to this site. You will also find introductions explaining the circumstances that birthed said stories and links to good folks in the business.
I hope you enjoy.
Unsatiated by three meager stories? Looking for a little more? Or perhaps you simply wish a clean and simple way to stay up to date on blog posts, writing forays, and semi-interesting life events of yours truly.
If so, The List is for you. Not only does signing up mainline notifications straight to your email, it also grants you access to another story. Specifically the one that earned me that oh-so-prestigious honorable mention. The tale is a bit clunky, a bit crass, and a lot fun. Click below, fill in your email, and enjoy.
In addition to polished, lovingly crafted works of fiction, I also type out semi-coherent ramblings. I do this because nobody wants to read a thinly veiled Hollywood metaphor set in a derelict sewage treatment plant. Blog posts also travel faster from my neurons to cyberspace. I am simply not as concerned with pacing, plot, or word count when ranting about film, comics, paranoia, or the certain extinction of the human species by time traveling dinosaurs.
If giant lizard apocalypses aren't enough to lure you in, I promise that the blog will also contain any and all information pertaining to the writey side of my career and possibly a smattering of vignettes from my personal life, just as soon as I get a personal life. If I especially love a book, I will share that as well. Readers deserve good books and good books deserve readers.
