S.P. Miskowski

Author's Bio

S.P. Miskowski's debut novel, KNOCK KNOCK, and her first novella, DELPHINE DODD, have been shortlisted for a Shirley Jackson Award. Both books are part of THE SKILLUTE CYCLE, which includes two more novellas: ASTORIA and IN THE LIGHT. All four books are published by Omnium Gatherum Media. Rated by Black Static book critic Peter Tennant as "one of the most interesting and original writers to emerge in recent years," Miskowski has written short stories published in Supernatural Tales, Identity Theory, Other Voices, and the anthology Detritus. Her work has received a Swarthout Award and two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships.
