Welcome New Omnium Gatherum Author Ennis Drake!

  Ennis Drake weeps for the loss of "The American Sensibility". He gives witness to the shadows that haunt the periphery of our waking life; half-glimpsed antagonists born of a culture of rightful fear. He carries this blackness with him always, exorcising it onto the white of the page as often and as fast as he can. But, as Fate delights in, the collective fears of a collective consciousness are an inexhaustible cancer.

Ennis's short fiction has appeared in various publications online and in print, including: "Love: The Breath of Eagleray", at Underland Press (publisher of Jeff VanderMeer's "Finch", John Shirley’s “In Extremis”, and Kealan Patrick Burke's "The Living"); "The Dark That Keeps Her", published in Twisted Legends, an anthology from Pill Hill Press (honorably mentioned in Ellen Datlow's Best Horror of the Year, Vol. 2); and most recently, "The Fishing of Dahlia", published in the Bram Stoker-nominated and Black Quill Award winning +Horror Library+ Volume 4. "The Fishing of Dahlia" also received an honorable mention in Ellen Datlow's Best Horror of the Year, Vol. 3.

Ennis lives in Florida, where the sub-tropical climate exacerbates his psychosis (but, you know, the beaches are nice, the beer is cold and the stiffer drinks come with an umbrella).

His novel 28 Teeth of Rage will be released in 2012
