Anton Strout

Urban fantasy author Anton Strout has given readers equal shares of chills and laughter since the first book of his Simon Canderous paranormal detective series, Dead To Me, came out from Penguin/Ace Books in 2008, giving Jim Butcher fans some fast moving entertainment between Dresden Files books.

Anton continues his tales of mayhem in Manhattan with his second series, the Spellmason Chronicles, as he treats readers to the story of a girl and her gargoyle, and explores themes of friendship, loyalty, and love with his trademark snarky twist. Anton is the author of many short stories in anthologies, including the upcoming Shadowed Souls, co-edited by Jim Butcher and Kerrie L. Hughes. He is the host and curator of content at The Once and Future Podcast, a geeky show featuring speculative fiction and those who create it.
