Brian Evenson

I've just recently discovered an author that I think might be of interest to other fans of TL. Brian Evenson is an American academic who writes fiction, and those pieces of his fiction that I've read so far are dark and disturbing on a level that I thought only Ligotti was truly capable of. If you're curious, an ideal short piece to read by way of introduction is "Prairie":

Apparently Evenson is a Mormon, but quit a position at Brigham Young University partially as a result of BYU's discomfort with the dark nature of his fiction. An interesting back story, to be sure.
