Robert Hood has been a perpetrator of scary fiction for several decades. Among his books are the short-story collections Day-dreaming on Company Time (FIP, 1988) and Immaterial: Ghost Stories (MirrorDanse Books, 2002), as well as novels such as Backstreets (Hodder Headline, 2000) and the Shades series (Hodder Headline, 2001). He recently co-edited Daikaiju! Giant Monster Tales with Robin Pen (Agog! Press, 2005), which is a remarkable collection of stories from around the world inspired by the Japanese tradition of giant monster films.

Hood has won a number of awards for his fiction; a lesser, but cooler, claim to fame is that one of his horror stories, “Autopsy,” was banned in Queensland. This story can be read on the Shadowed Realms Web site, where it is currently being serialized.
