Chet Williamson is a freelance writer who has published nearly 20 books, most of them in the fields of suspense and horror. Among his novels are Ash Wednesday, Soulstorm, Lowland Rider, McKain's Dilemma, Reign, Dreamthorp and The Searchers series. His books have been translated and published in many languages and countries, including France, Germany, Russia, Italy and Japan. His most recent books are Figures in Rain, a collection of his short stories, Pennsylvania Dutch Night Before Christmas, a picture book, and a centennial history of Elizabethtown College.
Nearly a hundred of his short stories have appeared in such magazines as The New Yorker, Playboy, Esquire, Twilight Zone, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction and many other magazines and anthologies. He has been a final nominee for the World Fantasy Award and the Mystery Writers of America's Edgar Award, and a six-time nominee for the Horror Writers Association's Stoker Award.
When he's not writing, Chet can be found either listening to or making music. He plays with Rambles.NET editor Tom Knapp in Fire in the Glen, a Celtic duo, and he loves and collects nearly every kind of music. His long-suffering wife Laurie is good enough to share the house with him and his collection. Their son Colin lives in Tokyo, where he works for Square, developing video games.
