Orrin Grey is a writer, editor, amateur film scholar, and monster expert who was born on the night before Halloween. His stories of monsters, ghosts, and sometimes the ghosts of monsters have appeared in dozens of anthologies, including Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year, and been gathered into two volumes, Never Bet the Devil & Other Warnings and Painted Monsters & Other Strange Beasts. He also writes licensed fiction and other odds-and-ends for Privateer Press, and he likes to play Hordes whenever he gets the chance, where he is utterly devoted to his beloved Gatormen. His writing about film has appeared in places like Strange Horizons and Clarkesworld, and he writes a regular column on vintage horror cinema at Innsmouth Free Press. John Langan once referred to him as “the monster guy,” and he never lets anyone forget it.
