Biography and work[edit]

Guy writes speculative fiction, including the horror, science fiction, fantasy, steampunk and paranormal genres.

He is best known for his short fiction. Stories of note include:

  • My Muse is Dead, of which OG's Speculative Fiction said, "They say there is a very thin line between ordinary and creative. It’s just a matter of how you look at things. A great piece of writing."[1]
  • Steaks, Every Day Fiction's most-read story of January, 2009, which led to an interview on their website.[2] His story is included in their anthology, Every Day Fiction Two.[3]
  • Sands, which won The Great E2 Fin de Siecle Fiction Challenge in Sept 2001. The judge noted, "What can I say? Great plot, great use of words, EVIL puns, appalling cheating. I laughed and I loved it."[4]
  • Exploring, dwarf-form poem, which was a finalist for the Science Fiction Poetry Association's 2012 Annual Contest.[5]

Guy was awarded the Horror Writers Association's Silver Hammer Award for service to the organization in 2011.[6] The award was presented at the 2012 World Horror Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah.[7] His graphic novel, "Behind These Eyes", co-written with Peter J. Wacks, was a finalist for the 2012 Bram Stoker Awards.[8] Guy served in voluntary positions in the Horror Writers Association, including the Web Team, where he was in charge of setting up new users for the HWA's website, and two years as the HWA Chapters Chairman.

He attends multiple conventions every year, including the World Horror Convention, GalaxyFest, AnomalyCon, COSine, Starfest, ConStellation, and MileHiCon. He has participated on numerous discussion panels with topics such as "Writing Strong Women in Speculative Fiction", "Zombies", "Are Zombies the New Black?", "NaNoWriMo for Beginners", "The Horror of HP Lovecraft", "E-Books for Beginners", "Niche Writing", "What is SteamPunk?", and "What Is Horror?". His current panel record for one convention (19) was set at AnomalyCon 2013 in Denver, CO.

An avid drummer, he played in several New York bands including Prickley Heat and Raw Sewage, which received radio airtime on college radio stations in upstate New York. Guy is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.[9]
